Condo Blues: End Table Bookshelf

End Table Bookshelf


My sewing room looks like a wrecking ball hit it. Me being me I don’t want to install any old set of shelves. This room is my creative space. I want something fun. 

Designer Isabel Quiroga created a bookshelf from old end tables. Floor to ceiling bookcases get my organizational motor running. The high gloss purple speaks to my quirky side.

The website featuring Isabel Quiroga is in Dutch but it isn’t too hard to figure out how to do something like this yourself.



Paint a bunch of thrift store end tables, cut them in half with a circular saw, install a slew of mollys, and screw those bad boys into the wall.



What do you think? Yay or Nay?
