"Thank you for choosing Nick's, what can I build for you today?"
"Yes hi! Ummmm... I'd like to order two floating shelves 2'x4.5"x2", and a rack to hold books in the same length, and ahhhh, I'll finish that off with a little coat rack with hooks that I'll supply."
"Is that all?"
"Yes, for today. You know I'll be back tomorrow!"
"Please pull forward to the first window."
All jokes aside, that is almost exactly how things happen around here. And I'm lucky enough to have a guy that gets great joy out of building things and trouble shooting. He whipped out my order in NO time. First came the floating shelves:
Then came the little book rack.
And finally, the hooks... One of the nursery items we bought on craigslist, we got these little Urban Outfitters hooks for FREE because the owner didn't think she was gonna use them! Score!! This will be perfect for little jackets, hairbows, etc!
And here's a little before/after of the wall!
It's going to be a little reading nook where the girls and I can sit together and read books and whatnot. The nursery itself is rather small, so I wanted to leave this corner relatively empty just to free up the room.
Each item on the shelves has sentimental value... although obviously something needs to go in that empty picture frame.
I love my little custom wall that I special-ordered.
For the record... Nick does does have flaws. I'll do a bullet point post on that topic one of these days.
JK babe, JK
