Today I am sharing a partial playroom reveal. I still have to make some art for the walls, but I can happily say... the painting is DONE! The Ikea Lack shelves are hung! Hanging them gets easier and easier the more you hang these suckers!

There's other projects I need to work on for the playroom, such as the shelf above. I found it on Kijiji and the seller delivered it for me. I only paid $25 for the shelf and that included delivery!
I plan to use it for all of my son's books. I just don't know what colours to paint it. (btw, my husband saw it and said "isn't it ugly?"... he should know I plan to paint it and he's usually impressed with the results. I say.. "MEN!" ughh! lol)
One thing I couldn't see in the sellers ad was how the left side of the unit looks. If you enlarge the last picture above of the shelf, you'll see some peg holes for more shelves and some other hardware... yes, on the OUTSIDE of the shelf!

The plan in my mind is to paint the outside and door of the shelf either gray or white, and the shelves and inside back and sides the same yellow as on the wall. That plan may change though...
Other projects in the room that are already completed and I will be sharing soon include a dresser turned reading bench, and a chalkboard table.
My husband still has to switch out the old light switch and electrical outlets in the room, unless I get so tired of waiting and do that myself too!
What colour or colours would you paint the shelf? (btw, us Canadians spell "colour" with a "u"... I am not spelling it wrong, but it looks weird even to me, just don't want anyone thinking I am spelling it incorrectly over and over and over again, lol!)
