So I have been wanting a new bookshelf for my room for the past..um, forever. The bookshelf in my room was the bookshelf my parents bought me when I was probably 8 years old. It was old and falling apart and I half embarrassed it took up any bit of space in my room. Yes, thank you mom and dad for buying me a bookshelf. But I really thank myself for having a job that allowed me the luxury of buying a $89 one at Ikea. Oh, and Agency X - that is my subtle hint that I could use a raise.
I may or may not have completely copied Katelyn with the bookshelf idea. I took the below picture of Katelyn's room when I was in DC.
Putting this bad boy together took about 30 minutes. However, don't think that 30 minutes went by without a few choice words and a "this is man's work" complaint escape my mouth.
I also wanted/needed more storage space for all my junk. It's amazing how much crap I've collected in the 4 years I've lived away from my parents. And so, where better to store all my junk than under my bed. And for such a thing, I had to buy risers to put my bed on. Pretty sure my bed is now 4 feet off the ground. I literally have to jump to get in it.
My next project is to find a new bedspread. I really want a black and white duvet cover that I can mix bright colored pillows with. I don't want something too busy, but I am not against prints or patterns. So, if you have any suggestions as to where I could find this very specific thing I am looking for, let me know. I've already checked Ikea (obviously) and The Company Store - and neither have the duvet I have pictured in my head. Go figure.
