This past weekend we accomplished several BIG things that I have been wanting done for a while. I painted the master bath (pics to come) while my wonderful, sweet, hard-working husband built Addison's bookcase for her nursery!
The original idea for this bookcase came from Pottery Barn Kids... my mom and I saw it in their catalog about 6 months or so ago and we both fell in love. And with our last name beginning with an "M" and all it just seemed perfect for the nursery! Once we decided to name her Addison we did consider only building half of it so it would make an "A" but ultimately decided I needed more space to put more stuff :) ha!
This is the "Montgomery 4 Shelf Bookcase" from PB
The original bookcase on Pottery Barn's website was $600. It was called the "Montgomery 4 Shelf Bookcase"! I was in love! So I asked Adam if he thought he could build it seeing as how it looked simple enough I was sure he could. And sure enough, he could and DID! And it turned out even better than I had imagined! He worked so hard to get all the measurements perfect and it turned out just that way, PERFECT!
Instead of spending $600 on a PB bookcase, we have a family original that we will have for a long time to come that cost us $160! Thanks go Home Depot for having all the supplies we needed Saturday! :) Big help!
It took Adam about 5 hours to do all the measuring, cutting and building and I was so shocked it all got put together so fast! It is beautiful!
Our next step is to paint it! We will prime it of course then paint it white. That is my plan for now, but seeing as how I change my mind ALL OF THE TIME these days, it could end up another color but quite sure white it is! Time will tell!
Here is Adam's masterpiece. It is wonderful. We put it in her room last night and it fits perfect and looks AWESOME! Now, paint will make it even better, once I decide ha!
