Child's bookcase

This is the bookcase, and I love how it turned out. Having a large piece like this (actually two bookcases attached together to look like one) means that there is ample space to house everything from books and jewelry to stuffed animals and CDs. My daughter's favorite slippers even have a home!

This photo has one question

Where did you find the amazing Woodstock Three Days of Peace and Music Poster in pink?! I have been looking for one for a while and I have never seen pink.

Thanks for your question! I actually picked up the poster in Woodstock, NY last summer. I love the colour too and my daughter is really into music so it has some meaning for her.

10. Paint the backs of plain bookcases. Make basic bookshelves pop with a background of vibrant color. Alternatively, you could cover the backs of the shelves with pretty wrapping paper or wallpaper scraps in a fun pattern.
