I just put this together the week before the in-laws arrived. We needed new floor mats (the old ones would leave huge piles of grey dust behind every time you lifted them). And hubby felt the girls should have pegs to hang things on so I went to Goodwill and bought a peg shelf and spray-painted it. The stool I already had from Goodwill.
You don't want to know about the hole I made in the wall behind this when hanging it. :(
I was going to put something else up for decor on the shelf but I've been rotating children's books and the bright colors and sweet illustrations cheer me so I think I will continue in that mode for awhile.
BTW what color would you say my entry is? (I painted the entry three years ago - the color is not new.)
In answer to Heather's Question the blue book is an Eloise Wilkins and the yellow one on the far right is a collection of Eloise Wilkins. The smallest book is a collection of Margaret Wise Brown stories and the one on the left is Margaret Wise Brown's Home for a Bunny. I can look up the illustrators if anyone is interested.
