Space has always been an issue in this home. We have had so many pieces of furniture come and go in the short 2.5 years we have lived here. We buy a sofa or dresser we feel is small… but when we get it into these little rooms, they seem HUGE! I was searching for some small space inspiration because I wanted this little 14×14 room to be so many things! I wanted a desk area, a dining table and room for Ezzy to still be able to play with his toys. Impossible? I thought so…
So I started on Pinterest, of course, and came across a gorgeous wall unit on oldbrandnew.com by Dabito, an interior and graphic designer. I totally fell in love with his space, his eye for design and also his amazing mid century inspired wall unit he had put together. The one he made was a little larger but I felt it would be so perfect for our little room if we could scale it a little bit.
Next day, we took down all the measurements and headed to Home Depot for supplies. It wasn’t a hard process, but pretty time consuming.
We found all the wood in the store and had it cut there according to our measurements, picked out the hardware (again, according to our measurements), grabbed some walnut stain + gold metallic spray paint, wall anchors and that about did it!
Watch the video on my Instagram account to get a feel for how its done and I am sure you can do it too if you love it! 🙂 All in all, it can be done in one day if you paint/stain in the morning.
Most knick knacks I already had around the house, but picked up a few new little things to fill the space. Check them out below! 🙂
