I have this great landing on our second floor that is cozy and needs to be painted but for now, I knew it would make a perfect little library. We already have a built-in bookshelf up there that we use for DVD's, yearbooks, some of the kids' books, games and puzzles.
|This is a good shot of our yellow built-in. That door goes to the guest room.|
So, built-ins were going to be a lot of work (even though my husband was more than willing to do it) and I was getting impatient. I happened upon this pair of bookshelves via Craigslist for $15 each. They are pretty solid. The backing isn't solid wood but the rest of it is. I was sold and promptly picked them up that afternoon.
|The other one was identical to this.|
|This is the view from the top of the stairs.|
I had to show this painting that my oldest daughter did (there she is in the pic as a baby!) a few days ago. Isn't it great? She is such a little artist.
