When we ordered our coffee table for the living room from Sauder, we decided to order a mid sized book case as well. The price was great and the greenish blue color was swoon worthy. Bead board back? A cute book case you don’t need to do anything to? Sign me up. I love the versatility of the book cases, and could think of a few places I could realistically use this.
The bookcase is currently in my living room, as seen on a particularly rough day in our home. I had it set up as a styled bookcase with coffee table books and accessories. Seeing as how the ages of my kids are a bit tricky, it just wasn’t working out in our home. Luckily, I can think of so many other uses for this in our house.
Bookcases are for more than just books. I love to use them in the play room by adding bins to store toys and games out of sight.
I need a place either in my mud room or in the entrance to the house in the garage to store shoes and backpacks. The shelves are deep enough to hold a few pairs of shoes.
I also could use it in my living room as well, and style it different ways. I could see adding wallpaper or fabric to the back to bring in some more pattern. Either way, my options are pretty limitless with this.
