for william's books

william's room was the first project in the house to get underway. i knew i wanted to stick with the same theme for his room but really make everything come together with the finishing touches i never got to before.
the last month or so i've been looking for something to house william's growing book collection. i got lucky when out with katelyn a few weeks back: i found a used book shelf/cart at a thrift store in pullman for $4.99. one side stored the books and the other side had red felt glued on from it's previous owner. it was nasty, dirty felt, but i knew exactly what i wanted to do with it.

i scrapped off the felt and used chalkboard paint to give william an area to be creative and draw.

william and i both love how it came out. i hope to have the rest of his room, before and after, up shortly.

I've always wanted one of those man.
That is the best deal ever.
I'm so happy for you.
I hope I can find such a deal.
I might just have to get Dru to make me one.
