Entry-way

 My apartment is still a work in progress. I'm always finding inspiration and trying to find ways to add a little new life into the place without spending a fortune. I came across this idea for an entry-way on pinterest. It's IKEA! I could hardly stand it...so that weekend I took the boyfriend and we headed to the nearest Ikea in search of this bookshelf. Success!

Storage Boxes - $16.99/each
