Living in an older home can present some challenges when it comes to storage. Our master bedroom is fairly narrow, so narrow in fact that a console table wouldn’t fit along this wall. Instead, we installed a shelf to provide the storage we desired while maintaining the ability to walk through the room (also something we desired). Well, the shelf was installed two years ago and since then, it’s sort of acted as a catchall for loose change, receipts and primarily, my jewelry. But, this week I decided to tackle this annoying little corner of my home and made this space more functional and attractive for around $20.

As I’ve mentioned before, I live in an old house. With this in mind, it can be assumed that my home has the same challenges as other older homes. In this instance, it’s a smaller floor plan where the size of my bedroom dictates that my bed be placed directly in front of a window. This can be a tricky situation, but after a little online shopping I found some beautiful headboards that could go in front of a window without blocking the light. Problem solved, right? Absolutely, if I wanted to spend $400 on a headboard, but I did not. So, I turned this inspiration into an inexpensive design solution.
