Here Comes the Sun

Our beloved bookcase is finally nearing completion. Things around here are taking about 20 times longer these days. Having our house on the market has all but drained us energy wise. Which, for those of you following, we’ve had a boatload of buyers come through, but still no luck. Meh… with time. On to better things.

Hello, beautiful sunshine yellow.


She arrived more than a week ahead of scheduled delivery, yipee! And hubs surprised me with her assembled after coming home from a day out with my family. That man knows how to keep a girl smiling. We opted to keep the included back piece off. It came it two separate pieces and since we planned on painting the back out anyway we just picked a new piece at Lowe’s and cut her down to size. We didn’t want to take any chances with a seam down the middle. Ended up costing us only an additional 6 buckaroos. Well spent. Here’s a look at what we started with before paint and backing, just for kicks.

We plan on filling her with mostly white accent pieces that will really pop against the yellow backdrop. Maybe some teal and olive green mixed in since we’re pretty crazy about those colors as well. We still need to go back through and fill in a few screw holes with putty and touch up with some white paint for the finished look but I couldn’t wait to share with you guys until then. And if you didn’t notice, that’s Miss Medallion Jewelry Box front and center, our awesome find last week. She’s everything I expected and more 🙂


Until we have a good collection of items to fill up the new space we’ll have to leave you with these next few photos for some eye candy. They’re our main inspiration as far as styling a bookcase. Keeping it simple, clean, and as streamlined as possible.
