I found my perfect shelving unit!

I have been on the search for the perfect shelving unit for our new home. I knew I wanted something with clean, modern lines. Mid century modern or newer. I was initially thinking something like these that I mentioned last week:



However, shelving units like these, in good condition, can cost thousands of dollars.

There’s always Ikea, I decided. Something like this:

A great price, and a clean, non-fussy look. Unfortunately, we do not have an Ikea in Madison and the shipping cost for this unit takes this from bargain to splurge.


So, I took a look on Craigslist and found this great 1980’s three piece shelving unit! Just $50! It lights up, has a small drop lid desk, and plenty of storage for games or movies. I love it so much! I feel like we’re really getting settled in now, thanks to this addition to our living/dining room. And look: There’s even room for my precious terrarium I made last week!
