    Yeah, I love those square shelf units from Ikea. I have the 4 x 4 ones in my office. You really don’t want them to fall over though as they weigh a ton!

  7. Its looking very creative work. You can use it as step and also in the form of corners also, that would be useful for decorating purpose.
    You can also buy sliding wardrobe doors and mirror doors online from Your Style Doors at cheap prices in UK.
