Yay! I am so excited...my Dad and I have a new project ahead of us. After scoping out the nursery this week, I realized that I have an empty little nook that is screaming for a cute bookcase. I got Addie this adorable handpainted bookcase from a local furniture store before I had her. It fit perfectly in that little nook.
Obviously, the garden themed bookcase is not going to work for a little boy (plus she has already claimed it in her new room) so now I have to come up with something equally cute yet boyish. I started doing some looking around and ultimately, I want a bookcase about this size so that it will hold a few baskets of toys, some books and a picture frame or two.
I would just order this bookcase, but I thought it was a little simple. I was hoping to do something more fun and unique. I came across this bookcase and I really like the grooved sides and scalloped top. It just gives it something extra (although I would not go this big or add the drawers).
I also love the little cubbies on this bookcase. I think it is neat how all the shelves aren't the exact same size.
Now, this bookcase isn't exactly the color I would go for, but I do like the idea of painting the bookcase instead of staining it. It would definitely make it stand out in the room.
My Dad and I are putting our heads together tomorrow and hopefully we will be able to come up with something cute and unique. He is brainstorming as we speak and I am sure he has already come up with something perfect :-) Don't worry, I promise to keep you updated on our project as it develops.
