I am sure that almost everyone as an IKEA expedit bookshelf somewhere in their house because they are so inexpensive and offer great storage.
Here is mine in between my living room and family room, plain jane:
Well I spiced it up a bit with a little bit of paint. I actually ordered an Overlay for my bathroom vanity and traced the design onto the shelf.
I used painters tape to tape of the straight lines.
The curves I painted with a small artist brush.
I used metallic silver paint by martha stewart.
(If you try this, use a exacto knife to score the tape before you take the tape off, otherwise you are just going to pull the paint off, Live and learn :)
(my little man is peeking in from the family room, such a cutie!!)
Now I just need to find/make some sort of art work for the wall.
Thanks so much for visiting.
