Nursery Room Bookshelf ~ Before

One of the things I was looking the most forward to with becoming pregnant again was decorating another nursery room. This time around there is not a lot of furniture that we need to buy thanks to a tremendous sense of obligation to keep Arielle's crib and dresser as described in this post. But not all of the furniture is set in stone because we do need to replace our old glider and get a new bookshelf.

From the moment I found out that we were having another baby I began searching craigslist for a bookshelf to makeover. It took nearly four months but I finally found one that I really like. It could stand to be a couple inches deeper to accomodate bigger baskets but for $35 I can't complain much considering that it's real wood and not laminate. I plan on priming it this weekend so it is ready for a fresh coat of paint after we find out if we are having a boy or a girl, however, I am torn between color choices for either. While I am really inclined to paint it white that sounds so boring! I guess my ultimate decision will depend on what color I decide to paint the walls so I am getting ahead of myself.

I am looking forward to making all of these decisions and many more so I can get started on all of my nursery room makeovers...stay tuned!

That looks like a really nice book shelf. I like white for baby's room, boy or girl. But I guess you could wait til you decide on a theme.
