This has been a long time coming. Mostly because I have been putting it on the back burner for, oh, 6+ months? Hubby actually built it back in November/December-ish and it has taken me this long to finish painting. Oh well.
My thought for the office was to have something light in color and a little modern and I found the Expidit bookcase from IKEA online.
I liked the design but thought maybe having a back behind the shelving would be good. Hubby said he would build it for me so I gladly let him! I didn't take too many photos because hubby isn't a fan of being in photos. Here is what I have, so take a look!
This was my bookshelf for the longest time. You can see that most shelves are painted except the very bottom and the right side of the bookcase.
See how hubby added a trim on all of the horizontal pieces? It gives it a bit of character and I really like it!
So, after using the bookcase for a bit, I thought it needed a little better organization, plus I wanted to combine my hubby's books with mine so I did some rearranging. Here is the most updated photo. Notice how I turned the magazine holders around? I thought they looked a bit messy and cluttered on the "open" side. I also labeled the holders. What do you think? I like it much better!
