Well, no room is complete without some decor of course. While we were working on finishing up the shelving I started to arrange some decor. My first accomplishment was hanging a set of 5 Virserum frames with a set of photos from Ikea.
I really liked the way the white frames look on the wall as well as how the pictures inside look.
Now back to the shelving. When we were installing it we had some gaping due to some really uneven walls. To fix this we bought some 3/4″ molding to cover all the cut edges and to fill the spots against the walls.
I ended up choosing a molding that has a curvy profile. It actually ended up making it really difficult to miter and smoothly connect a lot of edges but I do like the look. Once it was painted, nailed in and caulked the trim made the shelves look a lot more finished.
To decorate the upper shelf I bought a couple of glass jars on sale at Hobby Lobby and put some fake flowers in them.
I also bought a couple metal pots and fake plants from Ikea to go on the shelf. To add a little more custom look I cut some more labels with my silhouette to label the pots. At first I wanted to get some live succulents but seeing as we have a lack of natural light in this room it just seemed like a bad idea.
Here are both the shelves cleaned up and looking a little better. The painting that’s hanging in the center is one that my mom painted for me a few years ago. I’m glad I finally found a spot for it and I think it looks great in this room.
It’s so nice to have this room looking so finished and pretty. It makes doing laundry a little better. . . .just a little.
I’ve just got one more little update and this room is finished! Check out the vinyl decor I added to finish off the room.
