Clever: spool book-table

Today I'm sharing just a little inspiration, no time for a big post as I have just returned from a whirlwind road-trip with my boys (over 800 miles including a visit to my BFF and her family in
Des Moines, 2 college visits and 2 trips to Peru, IL for the Senior Little League play off games for our Wisconsin State Champion team).  I am whooped and now trying to catch up and get ready to head out again on Friday for our family vacation!  All good things, but keeping me busy, busy, busy so forgive my light posts the next couple of days.

I found this on Pinterest and was smitten!  I thought old cable spools were only used in the apartments of "poor" college students in conjunction with bookshelves made from boards and large concrete blocks!  This proves that with a little ingenuity and elbow grease, the spool can indeed be not only "green" and clever, but stylish!

Wouldn't this be darling in a cottage or country home?  It would also be perfect in a loft apartment, playing off that industrial vibe!

Does your room need a “prescription” for a change of decor, function or design
If so please contact me, I would love to help your room feel better with a Room Rx

I saw this on Ohdeedoh yesterday and thought it was genius! Anything that houses books and has wheels rocks.
