A wall to wall built-in buffet unit was the best choice to resolve the storage problems in my sister's dining room.

So, my plan was to give her a modern wooden table - a table with a wooden top and metal legs like my inspiration in the picture below.

The lack of storage I had to deal with in every single room was one of the reasons why I started renovating my own home. I started in the kitchen and slowly but surely I've been organizing and adding storage solutions to most of the rooms, even my bathroom!

Adding a shower niche, a row of hooks and uncovering space from under the eaves and turning it into pretty cubbies are some of the ways my bathroom got organized.
