The Ikea Billy Bookcases were a breeze to put together. Just ask TJ! :) They fit on the wall just how we pictured it. Here is the office in phase 2. It is pretty close to being done. My next project will be fancying up the bookcases. I plan to either paint the backs of them, wallpaper with a pretty linen wallpaper, or I am playing with the idea of replacing the backs with beadboard. I also want to add some molding to beef them up a bit and fill those little holes.
Here is the room as it is now.....
|The row of three glass cabinets above the desk is more space for books and special things!|
|That little gray table used to be a little brown table in our living room. I painted it with Annie Sloan Chalk Paint in French Linen. It is perfect in this room because it 3 drawers for storage! *This room gets a lot of sun, it was hard to take a picture on the window side!|

|This wall area is one of my favorite spots in the room. The burlap corkboard was a DYI project. You can read about that here:|
The W is from Anthro and I just love it! Also love those pictures of my kids when they were little! The heart plaques are from a anniversary trip TJ & I took so have special meaning. The little gold sunburst mirror just caught my eye at Pier 1 and was perfect for that spot!
|I love filling the shelves! It is a mix of special gifts, flea market finds, and old and new books.|
This room works so well for us! Having two spots to work is so nice! There is so much work space too! (before in my little black work hole I had a teeny tiny spot to work!) I love having a spot for everything! I am so much more organized!
I am going to be having fun with those bookcases! I have a few other projects I need to complete first. My loft and guest room are currently in a state of chaos! After that I will tackle those shelves! :)
