Nursery Progress: Bookcase

We did change ours up a bit from this pic found on Ana's White Blog


Once again, we couldnt have completed this without our helper 



I didnt take step by step pics, because we were working on a bunch of projects at one time.



We built ours for $30.00!
We did have a couple of pieces of lumber on hand, so this project would probably cost around $50 to build.


Here is Pottery Barn's Version for $119.00



I went and got a couple color swatches from Olympic No VOC paint. I wanted to match it to the birds in the mural.

The winner was Suddenly Saphire


Here it is prepped for painting





After 1 coat of paint.


2 Coats


Completed and Bolted to the wall to prevent any toddlers from pulling it down on top of them.
We need more books =)


I really love how everything is coming together.

Next Up: Photo Wall

I have had my eye on that Pottery Barn bookshelf for awhile now, but I think your's looks just as good. You guys need to teach us a few things in the construction department!
