Sometimes a tree doesn’t have to be a tree at all. We used the side unit of an IVAR storage unit as a frame, created a ladder effect with string, and outlined a tree shape with some favourite ornaments.
This farmhouse pine bookcase has been painted in Annie Sloan Country Grey with a lightened version of Provence inside. This living room staple is the perfect place to store your books and ornaments, with subtle pastel colours and pretty detailing. http://www.thetreasuretrove.co.uk/cabinets-and-storage/shabby-chic-pine-bookcase-with-bun-feet
Under the stairs space perfect for book cases, shelves, books and ornaments. Most staircases are overlooked when it comes to decorating, yet it is one of the first areas you see when you enter a house or maisonette flat. Whether you're thinking about replacing or installing a brand new staircase, or just want to jazz up your space with some simple DIY ideas, make the most of the space you have. You could incorporate some extra storage under the stairs by fitting shelves, cupboards, drawers…
Storage is an amazing way to put your personality on display too. We especially like using open storage like this BILLY bookcase to make a gallery using big pictures, books and personal objects. If you don’t want everything on show you can always use baskets on the shelves too.
