I'm not open to many people. I'm usually quiet and I don't really like attention. So if I like you enough to show you the real me, you must be very special. Sadly when people like me open up to someone and end up wounded we r scared to show anyone else!
This is a perfect combo of my two favorite ideas for that space under the stairs leading to the basement. A reading nook AND book storage and shelves . assuming that there is enough space for this there.
