DIY shelving

Happy Monday to everyone! Here's a little something I did over the weekend {and of course it couldn't have been done with out Casey}. We are organizing the house one room at a time. I knew I could do Caden's room pretty quickly as I knew exactly what I had in mind. His room really isn't too disorganized except for this bookshelf.
Notice everything piled on to the top shelf? {That's the only shelf he can't reach these days}. His toys were also starting to take over our living room so I wanted to consolidate them. Here are a couple pictures of the after product.

The shelf and storage bins were purchased at Target. {for under $100}

I covered the back in some 12 x 12 paper from Hobby Lobby.

This way Caden can play with everything on every shelf. And the amount of toys in the living room has diminished. Cute, fun, practical and inexpensive.

I love Justin Vining's work! Did you get A Beautiful World? His paintings make me miss Indiana.

I have the same thing in Ella's room but with pink baskets. We even have Noah's Ark in the same corner ;-).

Very awesome! I would have never thought to dress it up with the paper. You are so creative, Deb!

Thanks everyone!

The print is "Nate's World"- I don't know if he offers it anymore, but he has some that are very similar.

I love it! I got the same shelving for the girls toys some time ago and added another section after Christmas. I like the paper idea and will have to add some to ours.
