Hi, everyone! I took a little break from showing you our newly decorated office, but I'm back to that. I have styled and restyled these 3 built-in bookshelves no less than 3,482 times since we painted back in December! If you don't believe me, just ask Keith. So I'll go ahead and show you how they look now, with no promises that they'll stay this way for long...fair enough? (To see some before pics of our office, go here.)
I gathered together items that would work as storage containers to hold papers, office essentials, etc. that would also be pretty to look at!
Some baskets, old suitcases, and a wooden tote do the trick!
This is one of the most unusual things I've ever found (and if you know me at all, you know how I love whimsical goods!) It's a lumber sampler-each piece of wood is numbered and labeled with what kind of wood it is!
I also restyled the sewing machine table beside my chair.
Here's a closer look at that...
These shelves are on the other side, by our desk/computer (which I'm still not showing you because it's still messy! Plus I'm trying to find a way to cover the millions of cords...anyone else have that problem?)
I got this crate at the Sweet Salvage sale in Phoenix last month (which you can read about here.) I was drawn to its' chippy patina. It actually fit into an empty suitcase that we brought!
I LOVE this old number sign that I found at a little local antique shop. I was told that it came from a train or train station or something like that. Wherever it came from, I think it's tres cool!!
Here's a better view of both bookcases.
I'll wait and show you the 2 other shelves next time (1 restyled, the other filled with actual books! Imagine that! :)
Have a fantastic day!
