New Bookcases

My husband finally gave in and made my bookcases that I have showed him for months... The kids got new beds and we loved that they are bigger however just didn't have a headboard to go with and wasn't going to invest in any at this time. I thought these bookcases would be wonderful as a focal point kinda like a headboard does and for a fraction of the cost.  We paid almost $21.00 for these...

DD loves to read however the boys aren't as interested. I thought this might help and to my wonderful delight it has. Kevin fixed these last Sunday evening.

The kids jumped right to reading on the bed... MAKES MY HEART HAPPY.

I do not like this one as much as DS1's... I think the wall color really makes his pop! However there is a reason the other room is white so we will just leave it alone! LOL -- They are really enjoying seeing their books now instead of having to guess! I have been changing them every 2 to 3 days! 



  1. I agree, this really does make it great encouragement to read and serve as a terrific headboard replacement.

  2. How cool!!! I am planning some gradual changes in the kids rooms. Wanted to get them new beds and the boys got very upset. So gradual. I love these shelves for the girls room. They love to read (aka look at books).


Thanks so much for stopping by and reading about our journey! Leave me something that will make me happy! Have a blessed day!
