Simple Bookcase Turned Kids' Grocery Store & Toy Storage


I began with a pretty pine bookcase from Wayfair and intended to turn it into outdoor toy storage in our garage. But then it took shape as a pretend play grocery store for my kids, and now I can't decide which way to use it. For more details and the full tutorial, check out the link below, and please, help me decide what to do with it!
