YAY for office shelves!

It took a while and a few trips to Ikea (which Emmy kept calling "Idea" when we visited this week), but we FINALLY purchased and installed shelves in our office. 

We went with dark brown to match the dark brown table tops and were hoping to go with this configuration from Ikea:
Alas, the studs didn't line up in the right spots and my in-house handyman and anchoring/bolts expert did not recommend putting anything heavier than an apple on the shelves if we went with those brackets, so we improvised. The hubs headed out to Home Depot and got new brackets that we were able to anchor into the studs very easily - those shelves will NOT be coming down. EVER.

Here's the end result:

Although the brackets aren't what we had originally envisioned, we're happy with the end result. The shelves definitely help make the room feel close to finished and fill the giant white void that was there previously. 
I love me a shelf to display some cute things like a Lego piggy bank and these fun tupperware bins!
A clock is an essential piece of equipment in an office so you know if you're on schedule or not (I'm usually NOT) and who doesn't need an oversized pencil that actually writes with a giant piece of lead!??!!!

This guy is on the Hubby's side of the room. 
It feels great to have another room in the house close to complete. That said, we've definitely slowed down now that living here is the norm and every day commitments/appointments/needs/trials and tribulations have taken over instead of our main focus being decorating the house, as it was when we first moved here.

Slowly but surely though, this plain jane house with no personality is really becoming "ours" and we LOVE it.
