We have four bookshelves in our basement on either side of our tv. They were hard for me to look at, and I realized I needed to find a way to hide some things, as well as make some storage space for toys. The before was a little hodge-podge, but once I covered the photo albums with kraft paper, and added these wonderful baskets from Pottery Barn, they look cleaner, and more put together. Plus, the baskets let me hide the messies! I bought some simple wood plaques and painted them with chalkboard paint, then drilled holes and hung them with twine. Labels!

I love these baskets, and my new labels, too!
