I am BEYOND excited about the finished shelf project. My dad can work magic people! No lie. Would you believe me if I told you that I love the shelf unit just as much as I love my new end table and chair? Yes, the chair that I dedicated an ENTIRE post to titled: “Hi Chair , I Love You”. Obsessed much. Ahem. And I actually think I like the shelving unit MORE than the chair. No. I do! GASP!
J came home at lunch to help my dad get it to the house and carry it inside. Even in three different pieces…It’s THAT heavy.
It fit in the hole…BEAUTIFULLY! Literally…wall to wall with no space to spare! My dad could not have measured more perfectly. Although that doesn’t surprise me in the least bit. I wouldn’t expect anything different from his work.
We ended up going WHITE (obviously)! HUGE THANKS to everyone who commented and gave me your opinion! It truly helped!
To change it up a little (and because I like to be different like that), my dad had the idea of doing the trim in a different color. As soon as he mentioned the idea…I LOVED it!
We ended up staining the trim to match the baskets and it turned out so great!
At least I think so. 🙂
P Man seemed to LOVE it immediately!! He kept trying to play his cars in the bottom cubby’s before my dad was even done installing it.
Although then he quickly decided he was going to pretend he was flying.
Off the ottoman.
“Like a airpwane mommy.”
Nice. And safe too I might add.
GIANT GIANT GIANT THANKS to my Pops for making my PBK dream come to reality (and even better than PBK in my opinion)!! As J said, “WOW, that looks like it came straight out of a magazine!” I must agree!!
Once again, my dad ROCKS!
With talent like his…I MUST not let it go to waste. Little does he know, I have now decided to come up with MANY more projects for him!! Laundry room custom shelving is next! Oh he’s gonna love me! haha!
I am also excited to say that I have recently been approached by csnstores.com to do product reviews for them. I’m pretty excited about it because I absolultely love them! With over 200 products…I can’t wait to get started reviewing products for the house and sharing them with you!!
