industrial shelf for boys’ room
Our next project: little boys’ room! I wanted shelf in here for some book storage, some Lego creation displays and let’s be honest, for cute stuff we have hoarded gathered over the years.
You have seen these type of shelves right? I swear every store carries a version
Nothing that can’t be fixed with a trip to the hardware store! I got a sheet of 1/2 pre-sanded plywood for $35 at Home Depot and brought one of the shelves with me so I could have them cut the shelves to size for me (free!) I brought them home and used pre-stain conditioner, then a Minwax stain called special walnut. I didn’t want it super dark, so I brushed it on with a disposable foam brush, then wiped it off.
Then, my favorite part: accessorizing! The baseballs on top were from a yard sale I hit with Kristin in Montana -- a big bucketful for $5! The metal basket was from another yard sale. Heck, everything on this picture was from a yard sale (except the license plate, that came from our car!) I’ve just been saving it until I finally decided to tackle this room.
I framed a picture from one of our favorite books
Lego creations from my boys, and on the bottom some cool old milk crates my friend Lydia found from a local guy that was selling them for $5 each.
