YOU GUYS!!!! I am so freaking excited about today’s post! Ever since I was a little girl I have dreamt of having a library in my house. I love reading, and anytime someone asks me what my hobbies are, that is what I say! Haha. When we decided to build this house, I knew immediately that I wanted to turn the small front room into our library! It took us a little while after we moved in to get the shelves built because, money. But I had so much fun picking everything out for this little sanctuary and I can’t wait to show you all the details! You ready?
How amazing are these copper art shelves from Minted.com? I love them so much! I needed something for that little wall, and I love the way they turned out! It really helps tie in the copper light, too!
How pretty are those shelves you guys? I am so obsessed with them. The funny thing is, I thought I had a zillion books, and I was sure I was going to be able to fill the shelves up! Well, when we finally got them done and started unboxing it wasn’t even close! Haha. I got to do a lot more shelf styling than I had anticipated, but it was fun, and I love how they turned out! Plus, there is plenty of room to add new books over the years… hooray! The cute chairs are from Target, FYI!
The rug is from Rugs Expedition and I get so many compliments on it! I love the fancy pattern for the library! The pretty gray ottoman is from wayfair.com! The gorgeous chandelier was found on Overstock.com (and can also be found here on amazon) and was such a crazy good deal!
We priced out the wall to do it ourselves, and ultimately decided it wasn’t worth the time or money. Plus, we are by no means professional wood workers! Sometimes you can get just as good of a deal by pricing things out, and better quality. I called at least 12 different companies and we ended up going with Garron Jones (you can check out his other work here) and he did a great job. He was fast, affordable, and even painted in house after installation (which is typically much more expensive). We chose to match the existing base paint color in our house for a truly built in look. They turned out great and I would definitely recommend him if any of you live in St. George!
Most of the accessories are either from Target, TJMaxx, or Michaels! The amazing coasters were a gift and they are a DIY from my girl Anna from Practical and Pretty!
One more close up of those pretty shelves!
Well, what do you guys think? What is your favorite part of the room?
