I have lots to tell about painting and putting this room together (its far from done) but I wanted to share these little shelves I put up this past week. It's an idea I saw on Pinterest, and at first I wondered if it was going to be one of those, cute-on-camera-but-not-functional kinds of projects. I tried it anyway, and am happy to report the the shelves are quite sturdy, and hold lots of books very nicely. The best part is that they display the books facing out so you can see the cute covers.
Anyway...lots to do still, but even having one tiny corner done feels a little inspiring and motivational. And I'll take what I can get.
Shelves here at Ikea for $3.99!!
If you are interested the paint is Kwalpaint "Washbasin". Its hard to see well because Ollie's room has the least good light in it, but its a soft pretty bright warm gray. Original I know. And I hope you like it because you are going to be seeing a lot of it around here....there is a 5 gallon bucket of it that has been giving me the stare down since last summer. We plan to paint most the house that color. Hope its still good. More on all that later.
This is one shot of the room before:
