One of the big problems with our new apartment is storage. Like most families we have a lot stuff that we just don’t have anywhere to put, mainly because we left the hobby room shelves in our old apartment behind:
We still have our living room bookshelves of course but they don’t fit anything more than just our books (and barely that even, I think we have like 6 boxes on the attic with more books…):
The problem is where to put all of our other stuff; toys, magazines, sewing machines, fabrics etc? We’ve already bought one very nice, big (heavy!) second hand cabinet on blocket. Unfortunately it didn’t fit all things by far so we need to complement it with something else.
I love both the color and the glass doors! But you have to be either lucky or patient to find something like that, and we need storage now. An alternative that seems easy to find (also on the second hand market) is Ikea’s Linnarp cabinet:
The red color is fun and the glass doors seem very practical. On the other hand I really like wall hanging shelves like the ones we had in our old apartment, because they’re so flexible. And we have a lot of boxes, small drawers and caskets with toys that we can place underneith. Hmm, we will probably spend some time in the ski slopes (we’re on our way to Sälen for a week of vacation) thinking about this. :-)
