When we moved into this house my cooking magazines and recipe binders didn’t fit into my new kitchen. There just wasn’t any space for them so I kept them in my office. It drove me nuts though because as I said yesterday it’s always best if you can store stuff where you use it (and avoid being annoyed if at all possible).
I’ve been wanting to add a buffet of some kind to my dining room to store these things but I haven’t been able to find anything that wouldn’t break the budget. Then the other day as I was strolling through Wal-Mart as I tend to do I found this awesome bookshelf on sale. I loved it immediately and while it wasn’t exactly what I had in mind I knew I could make it work. Especially at the price of $39.00, sweet!

It even came with those two fabric bins you see, perfect for storing my tablecloths! I really do love it. In fact I love it so much I bought a second one to use as a TV stand in the basement. The two bins work nicely for corralling all the Wii stuff that never seems to end.
Now that they’re in my dining room, I’d really like to replace the colorful striped magazine holders with something a little more classy but it’s tough to beat 99 cents :) If I had more inclination or even more patience I’d just cover these myself with pretty scrapbook paper but nope they don’t bother me enough to do that…hahaha.

If and when I ever do get an actual buffet I can use this piece just about anywhere in the house. It would make a great nightstand in my daughter’s room or in my office as a printer stand. I don’t have room for it in my entryway but I wish I did because it would look great there to house hats and mitts and all the other stuff that needs a home as you walk in the door.
