This is happening around here and it’s very exciting!!
Remember back here when I shared about the bookshelf inspiration for the new nursery for the girls?
Liv’s room doesn’t have a closet (nixed that when we built the new bathroom) and suddenly storage became a key factor and a big consideration when redesigning the kids’ room for baby #2. We are bursting at the seams with Liv, and even though we’ll scale back and keep only the essentials, this built-in bookcase is going to be fantastic for the space!! Check out those deep toy drawers and the tall bookshelves waiting to be filled with critical kid supplies. Ahhh, I can hardly wait.
Kevin teamed up with our amazing neighbor who is a retired carpenter and who happened to hear about our plans to build the shelving and window seat unit. I cannot believe how fortunate we are to have him as a friend :).
We opted for a craftsman, Shaker-style design so that the built-ins would match our kitchen (which now has near matching cabinetry). I’m thinking of purchasing the same pulls to keep the look and feel consistent?
Next up, painting and installation!
