Bookshelf Inspiration

- Projects + Inspiration

In January, I posted about our 2016 Home Goals, and one of those goals was to paint the built in bookshelves in our dining room. I have been debating back and forth about how I want to paint them – all white, white with a different color background, stained, etc.

I have been searching for a little inspiration on Pinterest, and though I haven’t decided exactly what I want to do to our bookshelves yet, I thought I’d share some of my favorite images. I’ll share the makeover later, but for now…maybe this will help me decide what I want to do!

Which one is your favorite?

Oh and by the way, here’s an update on where we’re at in finishing our goals for 2016:

2016 Home Goals

  • Finish painting our kitchen cabinets. 
  • Tear up the old carpet on the stairs + upstairs hallway/bedrooms/bathroom. 
  • Finish epoxying the basement floor + top with polyurethane. 
  • Epoxy the garage floor. 
  • Finish painting the wall in the stairway. 
  • Paint the upstairs bedrooms and hallway. 
  • Install wood flooring in the dining room and kitchen. 
  • Paint the built-in bookshelves in our dining room. 
  • Find (or build) a dining room table. 
  • Plant a garden. 

We still have a LOT to do…but it’s only March, so we can do this, right? Right?! ;)
