We measured, made a list and headed to our favorite place...The Home Depot!
Daddy got right to work building the shelves. Those of you who knew my Dad know that he was the ultimate DIY guy. He could pretty much fix or make anything and it was always done to perfection. This is one of those projects he would have LOVED to have helped with. My Mom brought down several of Dad's tools that we needed and Stephen used those to work on the shelves. It was kind of like he was helping all the way from heaven.Stephen did a great job building the shelves and installing them very securely just in case anyone ever comes up with the idea to climb on them.
While Daddy worked on the shelves, I painted the room a bright yellow that Olive had picked out herself. I also went to work making pillowcases for a few pillows for seating. Olive saw the first one and immediately claimed it for her bed! Now I am making a new one for her bed, so she will return this one.
Shelves installed and ready for books!
Ready to be used! She thinks it is pretty great!
