While you were snoozing on Sunday afternoon, the Minions and I were knee deep in a dilemma.
My hoarder-like stash of inspiration magazines that were avalanching in the living room.
They were a visual nightmare.
They took up tons of space.
Mom had no place to set a beverage on movie night.
Neither did I.
In short, this was not working.
We looked at those units that wrap around your couch like a low bookcase.
But have you priced them?
However, if you call around, your local wine or liquor shop usually gives these babies away for free.
And look! Just deep enough for magazine storage.
This is like playing with blocks.
Now for the real test: how much storage will this afford us?
We haven't bolted this together yet. We wanted to check traffic flow and the practicality of the configuration before we made it permanent.
But I have to say, for free, this solution has us all pretty pleased so far. If it works out, we have some finishing touches planned as well.
What would you do?
