I love a bit of DIY, so from now on, I think I'm going to attempt at least one thing every Sunday, and blog about it!
I'll keep it simple, as the name suggests, but I'm hoping it'll inspire me to get things done.
I have a list (yes, another list) as long as my arm of projects that I want to attempt, and a much smaller list of projects I've actually started. Even less of them have been finished.
For today, my project was a bookcase for the nursery, and I'm happy to say I can finally tick it off my list.
Books are so important. Growing up, reading was something I had a real fondness for. As a result, I have read to Rayne and Harli since they were born, and between them the two have a large collection of books - some of which were mine when I was a child.
I decided they needed somewhere lovely to store them as original bookcase had become too small to contain them all neatly!
All the nursery furniture is white, but I wanted something more original for their bookcase. I browsed Pinterest for ages, and found some beautiful bookcases that had been wallpapered along the back. I loved the idea of a different background peeking through between their books, but I'm far too lazy for wallpaper! That involves paste and allowing time for the paste to dry.
I have two children 15 months apart, 4 dogs, and I am not an organised individual. Time is definitely not something I have :P
So, I searched for something quick instead, and found my saviour in
I don't have pictures of during the process as I hadn't planned to blog it, but it turned out so well that I just had to!
