We have been working on sprucing up our second floor hallway.
New doors and railing were added back when the bathroom was remodeled
and we finally got new carpet just a couple weeks ago.
The bookcase at the top of the stairs got a fresh coat of paint.
Since this is really the kids floor,
I wanted to style the bookcase with their books and things that have
special memories for them while looking nice at the same time (for me).
I tried to stick with the colors red, white and blue
as much as possible for somewhat of a cohesive look.
"Harry Potter" and "Star Wars" were big hits at our house.
Both of my kids made a ceramic turtle in 4th grade so I included those.
They loved the "Diary Of A Wimpy Kid" books.
Using baskets and containers to group some items
helped to keep it looking organized and not too cluttered.
And here are the darlings now looking so happy and appreciative
that their mother put so much time and effort into
styling their bookcase - ha ha!
