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:
|EKBY JÄRPEN/ EKBY BJÄRNUM from Ikea|
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.|
Slowly but surely though, this plain jane house with no personality is really becoming "ours" and we LOVE it.
