I am desperate to sort my son’s things out, to define spaces and bring some sort of order to the chaos, this is our family home. We’re short on space here and although my son has a double bedroom, he has to share his space with a large wardrobe full of his Dad’s clothes. It’s not ideal, and once you’ve added my son’s bed, a bedside table and a chest of drawers, there isn’t much space for anything else. I really wanted somewhere to put all of his chapter books in one place. Somewhere he’d walk past all the time, somewhere where he could pull a book out and maybe, just maybe, start reading more independently. I’ve been getting organised with Songmics and their 4 tier wooden bookcase. It’s a perfect storage solution for our needs.
I knew that I wanted some sort of bookcase to store my son’s books, but Songmics have a whole range of products available on Amazon, whether you’re looking for kitchen, garden or bathroom ideas. We have an area at the top of our stairs on the landing that’s been a dead space for ages. I’ve thought for ages that a bookcase would be a great idea, and something that my son could call his own, rather than sharing my bookcase in the spare room.
So I looked through the options that Songmics had available, measured the space that I had to use and decided that their 4 tier bookcase (affiliate link) in white would be perfect for our needs. My order was placed through Amazon and delivery was swift. I received the unit flat packed and well packaged, with clear instructions and no missing pieces (always a relief).
Each piece of the bookcase and each bag of components were clearly labelled and although it recommended the item as a two person build, I thought I’d try to put it together by myself. Daddy P is rarely at home, and I was impatient to crack on.
The build was easy and, although it might have been slightly easier in places to have had another person around, I still got it assembled really quickly.
Getting organised with Songmics was going to be easier than I’d expected and I was really impressed with the finish to the book-case, for £22.99 it’s a bargain to my mind.
The finished 4 tier bookcase measures 42.5cm wide x 107cm high x 29.5cm deep. Each fixed shelf space is approx 25 cms, making the shelves perfect for my son’s collection of chapter books.
The unit does come complete with fixings to secure it to the wall, so we’ll need to get the drill out for this, but otherwise you just need a cross head screwdriver to build the book-case.
I now feel like I’m getting organised with Songmics and my son has already sat on the landing reading a few of his books with me, so it’s a win win situation here.
