A little before and after

For the baby’s room my mom found this piece at Home Goods in Kansas City:

Spoiler alert – I am going to do a focal wall in her room and on the wall opposite (the one with the bookcase) I wanted to have it reflected somehow. My initial thought was to paint the same stencil design on the back of the bookcase. But on further thought I decided that it would kind of ruin the piece if I ever wanted to use it again. So I decided on a vinyl decal from Designed Beginnings on Etsy. She was able to custom size it to fit my bookcase. I love the way it turned out.

Half way through:

All done.

The final project with shelves. (Don’t look too close. It’s not 100% perfect!) But the final product looks great!

I am hoping to finalize the paint color (some shade of gray) soon!


  1. I love that bookshelf! Such a great piece and the decal looks great! Can't wait to see the feature wall!

  2. That looks fabulous!! I love the decal, and you and your mom are very talented!!
    Love, Aunt Angie

  3. Sooooo cute! I want one for my house!

  4. So cute!! I didn't know Kansas City had a homegoods! dangit! haha! Can't wait to see the rest of the room!

  5. Love it!! Good luck with the gray search. I swear that is the hardest paint color to pick out!

  6. That turned out great!
    Not sure what type of gray you are looking for, but I finally found mine! Zircon by Sherwin Williams, but I am having them darken it by 25%. The guy at Home Depot had that color in his system because he said it was the top gray to copy. I loved it.
    I have a small stick painted that color. If we meet for dinner soon (ha!), I will bring it! :-)

  7. Oooooh! I love it! Can't wait to see how the rest of the room comes together! And so smart to use the decal!!
