School/Office supplies

Bedroom shelves can also serve to hold functional items such as desk supplies or provide extra storage for items like toiletries. I am going to be adding a corner desk to our bedroom soon, and plan to install some shelves above my desk to hold pens, sticky notes, and other business papers.

I love the modern farmhouse look that these shelves offer in this bedroom. As you can see the wood is thick enough to show pieces that are appealing and decorative, as well as, a place for other more functional items to land.
