Charlie has 2 wooden bookshelves from Ikea (the Gorm shelves), and he wasn’t doing anything with them so he gave them to me! (What a doll, I know). I decided to put one in my office, but it just didn’t seem match that well with everything else I have in there. I have this perfect office vision in my mind, and I’m ALMOST. THERE. That’s why I haven’t done a complete office tour yet! I’m waiting for it to be perfect before I start shoving it’s pictures in your face. I think the last thing I need for it is a big white wooden desk. Anyway, check out what I did to the Gorm shelf – I used an extra Valspar sample paint that I had in white and painted the shelf. This little 8oz jar of paint was literally the perfect amount. I used up every drop of paint in that sucker. And now for the fun part, pics!
I love it now! It matches so well with my office, I may have to paint the other one too and add it in there 🙂
Do you have a Gorm shelf from Ikea that you’ve “upgraded”? Let us know what you did!
