The Bookcase....

Remember this post?  Well, I'm finally getting around to sharing our ladder shelf with you.  I realize it's not so original, but I really love it.....especially considering it cost us a grand total of $30.   Though I'm still not done with styling it (or the entire office for that matter), I am happy with the direction it's taking.  The wooden crates have moved from R's old room to our office, due to her new "climb everything" stage.  Good news is the crates actually store way more books than they appear, and I finally have a place for my oddly shaped crafting items.  This will have to serve as a sneak peak until I can share the rest of the office with you.
 I found the old ladder on craigslist for $20.  While still a simple DIY, we had to make the shelves level by adding another piece of wood under one side of each shelf.  We also connected the two pieces of wood using a metal bracket. I won't insult your intelligence by going into further detail:).

  1. The ladder/bookcase looks great. What is the colour of the wall behind it? I am searching for a dark gray for my family room. Thanks
