DIY Seating With Storage {Coffee and a Clever Idea}

It's classroom storage week for the 2013 Clutter-Free Classroom Project.

One way to save space is to get things to do double-duty...like serving as storage AND seating.

 I love the idea of using the Ikea shelves above as seating for a group meeting area paired with baskets. 

I also really like the addition of baskets or bins to the popular milkcrate seats to contain small objects.
Join me each weekday morning for coffee & a clever idea.
