Painted Pottery Barn Bookshelves

Hi Friends, hope everyone is having a great week.  The kids have started school which has been a little emotional for me now that we have a middle schooler. Seriously, how does time go by so fast, I really am trying to savor each passing moment but it is going by too fast.   However, I am  excited to get back to a schedule and start finishing up some projects around here!

About 2 years ago my hubby brought home a gigantic bookshelf wall system for our oldest.  I think I gave him the big eye roll at the time, I had just finished painting the bookshelves in the loft and there was no way I was going to be tackling this beast for a longggg time. It sat in his room unfinished up until about a week ago when my fabulous hubby decided to paint it.  Maybe the eye roll did work, you just have to be patient.

I snapped this photo when we were in the midst of painting his room.  The construction of the shelves are solid and it is from Pottery Barn, you could buy this new for….you ready for this……$1,400.00,  we paid $50, now that’s what I call a bargain!


He sanded, primmed and painted the shelves using Benjamin Moore Iron Mountain, the same color that we painted the kitchen island with.  Pottery barn bookshelves painted

Tour Through Blogland

My sweet friend Heather from Setting For Four, invited me to join the Blogland Tour and I couldn’t be more thrilled to be participating.    This is a wonderful opportunity to tell you a few things about myself, and introduce some other fabulous bloggers!

~Welcome To My Tour~

My husband and I have a huge love for DIY, and enjoy sharing colorful tidbits of our suburban life. I love to show others how they can achieve the same stylish and beautiful spaces on small budgets. Over the years, we have taken our builder grade track home and made it our own on a great big budget.  Our home reflects who we are and we try to never pay full price for anything.
