Using my barstool as a makeshift laptop holder

So I am constantly trying to come up with more room in my small 2 bedroom trailer. I am either rearranging something or bringing in something new and getting rid of something old.

So one day I came up with an idea on how to incorporate my barstool ( that I hardly ever use) and my laptop computer.

So I took an old metal shelf I had leftover and predrilled some holes into my metal barstool. Then I was able to screw some screws in the shelf attaching it to the upper part of my barstool.

Which then gave me my shelf for holding my laptop. I have been having trouble lately with my laptop, and so I have been having to use an external keyboard and a wired mouse that went with the external keyboard.

So I was now able to put my keyboard and mouse on the seat of the barstool. I then got a piece of wood that fit across the bottom of my chair. Which would now enable me to use the bottom of the barstool for some extra storage.

I can now keep my notebooks, folders, and other misc items right there with my laptop for easy finding.

It works out great for me because I can keep it right in the living room beside my favorite rocking chair. And if I need to move it, that is easy to do being that everything is on a chair basically.

So if you too are lacking space living in close quarters, you may want to check out this idea to help utilize every piece of furniture that you have to help get yourself more organized.

Good luck and happy decorating!

I am 44 and have 3 grown daughters. And I have 1 granddaughter who I am crazy about! I am a recovering heroin addict who has now been clean for almost 5 years to the day. Well I should say clean from needles for that amount of time. I can’t say completely clean because my Dr’s had me on methadone pills for a while when I first was released from the hospital. I then self medicated myself and went to a Dr for a while for suboxone. Which I then used to get myself off of the methadone pills. I was paralyzed 5 years ago as a result of using needles. My Dr’s never thought that I would walk again with the amount of infection they had to remove from my spinal cord. Yet I am now walking! Unassisted even. I do not require a cane or anything to walk now, is what I mean by unassisted. I do better with a cane but I can actually do it without it. And the Dr’s really never thought that would happen. So I am now in school again and almost have my associates degree in general studies. I have been focusing on going to school to be a drug and alcohol counselor. I have had some hiccups along the way since I suffer from depression a lot since this happened. But I am determined to never give up. So I hope that you will follow me either on my blog or my Facebook pages and help support getting addicts the help that they really need. Instead of the stereotype labels they get here in America as well as the criminal label they acquire when they cannot just quit their use of drugs or alcohol.
