office space & an update

I have been collecting images of these gorgeously styled white bookcases on my pinterest for a while now and last night the bf and I finally made the trip to ikea to purchase this inexpensive solution. What I really wanted was something like this or this...but a white expedit is what I had to work with (shown at the bottom)! Still have a little more to do to glam up my bookcase but its a start...not sure how I feel about that lamp with everything and I plan to hang the painting and maybe make a gallery wall? But I am happy to finally have a place to stash my things! What do you think?

  1. Is that not just the ultimate dream - having a beautifully well kept bookcase?! Mine is just full of textbooks and Vogues...

  2. Huge white bookcases are the best <3 you can store plenty of things and decorate in tons of different ways every time! Yay! I would probably choose a smaller bookcase as in the last photo for my place.. or both sizes! :) xoo

  3. I love it! Looks great!! The other images are gorgeous as well. I have a black Lack bookcase, and I wish they still made them. I'm kicking myself for not buying it in white instead!!

  5. Looks great! Love the painting resting on top. I had the big version for years before I found the brass etagere. It will serve you well. Love that you are glam-ing it up -- mine was way too utilitarian.
