Those bookshelves that I REINVENTED for the Procrastination Party have been sitting in my foyer waiting for accessories. All trimmed out and painted, but NAKED.
So I shopped the house. AND the beach bag. I'd like to tell ya that we've been to the beach for some shell hunting THIS YEAR. But, honestly, when I pulled out the beach bag, there were shells and sand from LAST SUMMER still in there. Yeah, gross.
Here they are in my wood pedestal bowl from the thrift store. Painted Heirloom White, of course.
This frame I've had for awhile. I found it at the Goodwill, but it originally came from Target. I gave it a light coat of Heirloom White to just highlight the details and left the background dark. A small piece of scrapbook paper in my favorite polka dots and a hot-glued shell for summery art!
I also shopped the kids' bookshelves and brought down our Little House on the Prairie books. I LOVED this series when I was a kid, and have fond memories of summer afternoons reading and rereading these stories.
Here's the bookshelf with it's LAZY DAYS OF SUMMER look.
The bottom three shelves are still empty. I'm still thinking of how to dress these up without too much clutter. Baskets, maybe?
Since these changes were cheap, cheap, cheap, I'm linking up to Frugal Friday at the Shabby Nest. Go check it out!
