WE all know that come Christmas, our kids will have more books and toys than ever before. 

Luckily one savvy mum has shared her cheap and easy hack to add extra storage to your kids’ bedroom. 



Aneta, known online as @anetas_leben, regularly shares DIY and interior hacks with her 270,00 followers. 

In her latest Instagram reel, the DIY pro shows how she transforms an Ikea MOPPE mini chest of drawers into a bookcase her for son. 

“Yesterday I designed this cute book box. Super quick and easy. 

“At first, I thought about painting it a lush green, but at the moment I like these warm wood tones and I can still paint.

She starts by removing the drawers, before measuring and cutting the hardwood dowel into four even sections for the feet.
