We have been working so hard on Emma's nursery. However, every time we finish a project, we discover another that must be completed. That's okay though... we certainly don't mind making this room perfect for our miracle baby.
Today, we tackled a bookshelf. I plan on using the bookshelf for... well, books (duh!) but am also going to put some baskets (still looking for the perfect ones!) on a couple of the shelves for all of the little things that babies require.
I can't believe how much room she already takes up and how much stuff she already has! She hasn't even been born yet! Haha.
Anyway, this was a super fun project!
Everything in Emma's nursery, so far, is vintage but we just couldn't find a perfect bookshelf for the right price (aka. cheap) that would match perfectly. So, we decided to venture to Target and get creative. We purchased the large (5 shelf) white bookcase and decided to paint the back of it the same gray color that we used to make the chevron wall behind her crib.
It looks amazing!!!!
I love the contrast in color of the dark gray and crisp white!
I also love that it was cheap and matches her room!
Shelf: $32.99 (-5% for using my debit RedCard)
Paint: Leftover from another project
Roller: Already owned
Installation and construction: Free (I have a wonderful hubby!)
|Don't you just LOVE that chandler?!|
|Adjustable shelves so she can switch them up to work for her when she's older.|
Now... to just find the perfect baskets.
Sounds simple enough. HA!
