MommyDecorates.com is excited to share with you bookcase ideas for your babies room and MORE! I absolutely love bookcases in a babies room. I think that they serve a great need as a space-saver and help to organize the room, but also make the room look fabulous if they are done right.
MommyDecorates Bookcase Color Tip: Buy a bookshelf in a neutral color and then add a rich splash of color to the back of shelves. Add a soft neutral teddy bear and pastel books and collectables.
MommyDecorates.com Helpful Hints
- Think of your babies room as a color palette when making color choices. Coordinate neutral colors (creams & tans) and even pastels (pink & mint green) with bold colors. Consider colors that appeal to you! Take a look at Sherwin Williams. The site allows you to experiment with color before you invest in paint.
- Use thin fabric on the back part of your bookshelf instead of paint. Use liquid starch (spray bottle) to adhere the fabric.
- I found this blog where a woman transformed her bookshelf using fabric here
- Use scrapbook paper or wallpaper to decorate the back part of your bookshelf. Hobby Lobby has a ton of scrapbooking papers to help you get started today!

Her crafty husband just cut the pallet pieces apart and nailed a piece of wood to the bottoms to create the actual shelf for the books to rest on. Then he screwed them into the studs in the walls. Super sweet! Stay tuned…later this week we will have more boy themed nursery pictures from Kristy!
