Not Your Normal Bookcase

One Saturday I came across a blog called IHeart Organizing.  I spent hours on Jen's blog!  (I almost got lost there again as I went to search for her website address and came across her Christmas decorating ideas - love them!)  

In one of her posts she shared photos of her redecorated children's playroom.  She bought IKEA bookcases and turned them into seating benches.  She added storage bins to store her children's toys in.  I loved the look of her benches and decided to try it for myself by creating a seating bookcase.  Pictured above is the finished product. My little one and I enjoy sitting on it together as we read a good book.  It faces our fireplace so we stay warm and cozy on those cold days.  

For directions on how to create your own seating bench, visit IHeart Organizing.  But make sure to set aside enough time to browse through her blog because once you start reading all of her organizing ideas, you won't be able to stop! 


  1. Cute! What a great idea!

  2. Your bench turned out amazing!! Love it, thanks so much for sharing!
