These hanging notepads can give your room a touch of archaism. You can put up sticky notes or cut-outs and even use it as a vision pad.

This works perfectly in your bedroom as you can put up your personal agendas on it. Also, feel free to pin up some jewelry you’re planning to wear the next day.

Also, you could just tie up a pen stand next to it. Just attach two leather straps on the wall and buy a branch-style rod.

Pass a roll of the pad through the rod and place it between the straps. Easy!

Repurpose old dresser’s drawers and attach them together to make a unique bookcase. If you’re buying second-hand drawers online, opt for dovetailed drawers as they hold a lot of books.

Before installing the bookcase, get an estimate of the space your wall has to offer.
