{ Chunky Shelves }

We finally did something little in the nursery. 

We literally put furniture into this room, put a rug down, and that was it when we moved in. I have been struggling with doing anything in here because the plan is to move our daughter to this room next year sometime and have both the boys upstairs. So with that in the plan I didn't want to buy things or do anything too permanent. 

I was really wanting to get a few shelves in here so once I told Mark what I was wanting he got to work and gave me exactly what I was thinking.

I know I can use these shelves no matter who is in this room and I love the look of the chunky shelves! 

They were pretty simple to make, if you google this kind of shelf, you'll find a million tutorials, so I will spare you of that here but if you are wondering how we did ours I'll give the quick run down. 

He basically built a box, put a piece on the wall with anchors and then nailed the shelf to the wall piece. 

I purchased a  letter C to put up in this room forever ago as well as that deer painting that I had custom made with the navy background and both have finally found a home up on the top shelf! The little navy and white striped whale was a sweet gift from a co-worker and I love how perfect it fits with my choice of navy and white color scheme and she had no idea!

I still need to paint them but I wanted to get your thoughts on that before I did. I cant decided if I want to go with white (like the trim color, or the cream wall color), navy, or maybe I should just stain them...What's your vote? What would you do?

I absolutely LOVE these shelves! I wanted a space to display some of my favorite little books and a few cute things and these are perfect for that.

There's still some things I want to do in this room, like adding curtains, and some more items on the walls but I think I will wait till we make the switcheroo with the kids. 


The letter "C" on the shelf was purchased from The Little Blue House Etsy Shop SO CHEAP (price not quality!)

Deer Painting was purchased from Sweet Bananas Art Etsy Shop 


  1. White. That way you can easily change the decor once Jenna moves to that room. Very cute!
