Thanks to Pinterest and a bunch of fabulous ideas we’ve been bookmarking from other bloggers, Gwyneth and I had the best time making the Expedit ours this weekend!
The elephant came in a set of toys that included a giraffe, lion, tiger and gorilla that all got spray paint makeovers. Gwyneth and I now have a brass menagerie that we’ll have to find homes for!
A while back we saw an idea on Pinterest that we loved, and thought our bookcase would be the perfect spot to bring it to life in our home. We downloaded a fortune cookie printable, cut out the fortunes and put them in a small bowl. Love an extra kick of inspiration on the way out the door!
We also gave the end of our Expedit a little customization with My Overlays. They have several patterns and sizes to choose from and come white and ready to paint any color you want! We spray painted them with the same metallic we used on our elephant and stuck them on with spray adhesive.
Gwyneth monitored my work to make sure I put them on straight while resting in her favorite spot.
The bedroom side of the bookcase is right next to the closet, so the shelves were perfect for my bowls of jewelry and perfume tray.
(Yes, that’s a spray painted frog on the tray. We were on a roll.)
We couldn’t be more pleased with our new purchase! We got the separation and storage we desperately needed and had the best time styling each of the cubbies!
