winebox shelves

We put the wineboxes up lastnight, and I'm pretty please with how they're turning out.  Three on the wall opposite the bed, and one functioning as a bed-side table.  Sorry for the not-so-hot photography - I quickly took these before heading to work this morning.

I'm still planning on lining them, which will add a bit of colour and brightness to the room.  This morning was actually quite sunny (Spring has definitely peaked her head around the corner), but the room still looked quite dark.  I found this awesome site through design*sponge (perhaps?) called chicshelfpaper.com.  They are in the business of, well, chic shelf paper like these:
 At the moment they only have online sales set-up for US and Canada shipping, but if you email them they are happy to quote you the FexEx/DHS/Postie price and see if you're happy to follow through with the order.  Now it's just a matter of deciding which one...
We also hung two hooks that I found while walking around Kollwitzplatz - a beautiful area of Prenzlauerberg not too far from our apartment.  So now we're all ready for people to stay!

Love the coat hooks - similar could sit well on bedroom doors at Crown Hill.
