Home Projects: Under-Eave Storage Space - Yankee Magazine. This is where I want the tilt-out laundry basket, a small frig, the fire safe, some book shelves for storage baskets, and/or an electric fireplace for winter warmth.
Practical shelving makes the most of the alcove space in this living room, with a large space on the bottom shelf to store logs to fuel the traditional wood-burning stove. Light wooden flooring is teamed with a fresh white rug to match the sofa. Nautical-style cushions and other seaside accessories complete the coastal look.
