Hey friends, I hope you had a great weekend! We spent ours planting flowers, mulching and getting our garden ready for planting. Thank goodness I have a very eager 4 year old who loves to dig in dirt and help any chance he can get. I have to say though, even with his help my husband and I are totally beat today. There's nothing like grunt labor to make you realize how out of shape you are. #sadbuttrue
Since sharing a garden full of dirt and a few plants isn't very exciting, I thought I would share a quick an easy update that I made to an old bookcase.
These planks are perfect for quick projects since they are peel and stick and super easy to cut with a quick swipe of a razor blade. The entire project only took 3 pieces of flooring, which ends up being about $6.00. I bought 6 boxes for our mudroom, but you can also buy them individually making this project quick, easy and super affordable!
I began by removing the back of the bookcase then measured and cut the planks,
peeled off the back,
stuck them to the original bookcase backing then reinstalled it onto the bookcase. That's it.
I also swapped out a few decor pieces by shopping the house. I snatched the mirror from the mudroom (HomeGoods), the number 4 from the basement (HomeGoods Clearance), the rustic metal vase from the closet (friends wedding) and the vintage wood box from my moms house. In case you are wondering, I have two of these wood boxes and the other one is still on the dining room table.
I love how this space is coming together and smile every time I walk past. Now, if only we could do something about those dated 70's orange hardwood floors!
