Bookcase Styling {Pinterest to the Rescue}

Once I finally found all my decor items again, it was time to put the house back together again.  The quick after-Christmas clean up had left everything bare  and boring.  I was anxious to get the place “cozied up” again, but I just didn’t have a ton of time to fiddle and fuss.

However, I wanted the place to look totally different using things I already had. Yep.  I’m crazy like that.

So, what’s a girl to do?

Pinterest, of course!Smile

The first area I wanted to tackle was our Living Room bookcase.  I typed  “bookcase styling” in Pinterest’s search engine, and up popped 100s of beautiful images.  I sorted through them quickly, only pausing to pin ones that  were pretty to me.

This is the one I landed on and wanted to “copy” using my own things:


I was drawn to the simplicity and freshness of it.  White and wood colors…with a little pop of blue.

I quickly drew up a sketch of the basic layout (ie where tall things were and where the colors were) and went to my {finally!} organized decor items in the basement.  This is how it turned out.

It’s far from identical to the original picture, but it is quickest decor styling I’ve ever done.

I also left the twinkle lights up.

These rainy,  gray winter skies tell me it’s completely appropriate to have these little orbs of happiness still shining…Smile

And, no, this chair isn’t a normal living room chair for us.  In fact, I’m quite certain it wouldn’t even hold a person up…

But, my, I think it’s cute!!  {It was my one and only “roadside rescue”!…}
