Little Man's Built-In::Part Three

Over the last year-and-a-half, Noah's room has experienced several changes, the biggest of which happened this past weekend.  Before I show you the great finale, I thought I'd take you back in time a little first.

When we first moved in...

And after I finally painted...

Now, let's get to the good stuff.  We moved the crib out before we installed the bookcase so the room wouldn't feel so crowded.  It felt really strange in there for a while without the crib.  He hasn't slept in it since December, but it still seemed just a little sad to see it move to another room.  Not to mention empty.

After reading along all week, I'm sure you know the building process by now, so...

 here is our big bookcase reveal!!  Once Blair got the shelf in place, we added trim (quarter round) and painted it all.  At some point, we will be adding crown moulding to every room in the house, so that little space at the top right won't matter. 

And with books.  I'm actually bringing several boxes of books home from my parents' house tomorrow,  so I didn't want to fill the shelves too much just yet.

We're pretty pleased.  Well.  Alright.  We're incredibly pleased!  It's our favorite room in the house now, and Noah seems to love it just as much as we do.


  1. Love, love, love it! Kudos to Blair!
