Perhaps you don't have time to read books but you do read magazines. Are your magazines stacked on top of the chair? Here is an idea! A DIY (or have soeone make it for you) pallet magazine holder. Paint it to match your decor.
Rope & wood shelf place baby quilts, blankets and stuffed animals on the shelves. We placed a knot in the rope under each wooden shelve to give it more character and it didnt hang this low to the floor.it was EASY.
Kitchen or anywhere DIY. Seems simple enough, depending on your gap between shelves, anywhere from ropes to ropes for your spacing. You could even use wider wood, just adjust your rope length to accommodate your width and height of your shelves.
