IKEA Experience

I had this empty wall and a major lack of storage.

So, after browsing the Internet for the cheapest fix,
 I headed to IKEA to purchase these bad boys
I got white so that if I want to paint it later I can.

Normally I can be a pretty patient person.
This night, not so much.
The box was 73lbs.
 In order to get the thing up my stairs (was alone and refused to wait on Manfriend), I had to rip it into shreds and carry up the pieces one at a time.

Then I scoffed at the fat little men telling me I had to have an assembly partner
and got to work.

Many frustrated outburst later

Then came the fun part...

I was too exhausted to "style" it but wanted to get a few things out of plastic bins.
Now all of my scrapbooks, cook books, magazine clippings, stamps, stickers, workout gear....has its own nice little cube.

Sorry for the lighting, it was 9:30 and y'all know my camera is AWFUL to begin with.
You get the point. Empty wall is gone, crafty tools have a place, plastic bins stacked in corner are gone, and I am becoming a bit more organized.

Now I just need to get around to making it look fancy.

Any cute tips for me?
