When we moved back in to our house I had a vision for the office. And we are S.L.O.W.L.Y getting there. What is next on our To Do List? Hopefully in the near future we will enhance our Ikea bookshelves with molding. I have seen so many great tutorials from other bloggers here and here and just need to get brave and do it. We made the first step and bought a 6 foot piece of molding to test out our sawing skills.
What we’ve done in the office thus far…
First we needed a desk…so we semi-DIY’d one. We got the legs from Ikea and added a stained wood top. It is 3 wide pine planks. I actually mixed 2 stains to get the grayish brown that I wanted!
Then we added 2 Ikea Billy Bookcases! They are the perfect basic book shelf and just needs a little facelift!
As you can see, it is a work in progress. I’ll post after pics and any tips I may have once we add the molding. Wish me luck!
