The first big projects we tackled right after I had Anna were two sets of built-in bookshelves– one in the playroom, and one in the front room. When I say right after, I mean right after, as in a few days after I got home from the hospital and we shot this video.
I just love built-in shelving in pretty much any space. It adds so much character and makes your home feel so custom. I had the idea to add a corner bookcase, or corner built-in, in the front living room in a sort of plain and awkward corner next to the front door.
Per usual, I designed it and Jon did the heavy lifting. He’s just so great at making my whacky ideas come to life. And this one is a project you can totally do yourself. I give you our DIY corner bookcase tutorial. It’s in video, naturally, which I think makes it so much easier to understand.

No written words could express how excited I am to get these babies styled. Styling is my jam.
Ya’ll, you know you’ve got an awkward corner in your home somewhere. Go build yo self a bookshelf.
