White furniture is all the rage right now, and I admit that I’m totally in love with the trend. I think white pieces make the space look brighter and cleaner, and they can be dressed up with lots of beautiful colors. White furniture goes with everything and really makes the space look more modern. I know that’s not everyone’s aesthetic, but personally I’ve always liked that color scheme.
I’ve been looking for a bookcase to add to our bedroom, because I wanted to put a few things away from the bedside table while still having them on display and within reach somewhere else. That’s when I stumbled upon Way Basics Kensington, a 5-tier shelving unit that can be easily assembled at home without the use of any tools. You literally don’t need anything, not even the nails or adhesive, and the entire assembly can be done using your bare hands. I am a small girl, and I had no issues assembling my unit. Took me about 30 minutes total, because I kept re-checking with the manual to make sure I get it right on the first try.
The material is very light, and if I remember correctly, the shipping container my shelf came in weighed only 10lbs or something. That’s mainly because Way Basics Kensington bookcase is made of eco-friendly zTube paperboard. The latest in sustainable construction, zTubes help connect paperboard rods to shelving boards made with safe VOC and formaldehyde-free material.
Why am I writing about shelves on a beauty blog? Well, with Black Friday and Cyber Monday coming up, I figured you guys might want to explore some options other than makeup. Besides, I think Way Basics Kensington bookcase is actually a great way to store your makeup, skincare, and brushes all in one space and within reach. I couldn’t decide for the longest time whether I should keep it in the bedroom or move it to my beauty room, because it’s just so perfect, so maybe I will grab another one.
