Transformations for Stylish and Organized Kids’ Storage/Sitting Room

Turning a couple of bookshelves into a corner bench/storage center is a great idea if you have room. You just need two bookshelves that are the same size. Just line them up on both walls touching in the corner (lie them on their sides). You can purchase or even make cushions for the top to turn them into a great sitting area and the openings are perfect for holding baskets or canvas totes where you can store toys. Add labels to the totes and you can really keep things organized.
