Staggered Mini-Shelves Make For Chic Storage

It can be hard to get creative with your decor in shoebox-sized apartments. (Unless, of course, you count using half of your bed for shoe storage "creative" instead of plain sad.)

Even though I'm going on three years in my apartment, I wouldn't say the place is "decorated," so to speak.
