For Noah's second birthday, one of the things we did for him was transition him out of his crib and into a toddler bed. While it still makes me a little sad to think that he is already out of his crib, it isn't as bad because Meadow will be in his old crib in about a month. So, I don't have to deal with the sadness that is going to come from packing up the crib just yet! I went for a very dark shade of blue-- Revel Blue by Sherwin Williams-- because the theme of his room is outer space. I am still looking for curtains and curtain rods so I am not going to share the entire room just yet, but I did want to share a few photos of the parts I love--including this DIY bookshelf I made for him!
I have been wanting to put up shelves like this for Noah since I was pregnant and planning his nursery. Maybe it was because we were renting from a strict landlord or maybe it was because I just didn't have the home-decorating bug yet, but I never did it. However, I recently went ahead and finally accomplished a book shelf made out of picture ledges from IKEA! Of course, you guys know where I got the idea from-- Pinterest--so head over there if you need more inspiration for putting up one of your own. It's literally one of the easiest DIY projects I've done around the house (unlike the toddler bed below which needs to be fixed at some point...) so I'm sure why I didn't do it sooner.
