Ta da! I love it. It's definitely my most favorite spot to hang out now. I am the worst about tweaking stuff for days and weeks after a project so I'm going to go ahead and say the shelves and styled and the wall behind me computer is done. That doesn't mean it won't change. Daily. That's how I roll.
**A couple months after writing this post, rag rugs were being sold brand new at Goodwill so I grabbed one and stapled / hot glued it on!
Side note: Notice that our curtains on this wall are hung with curtain rings and nails. The wall did need curtains but because we have a love seat in the bay window and we have blinds, I didn't want to spend the money on a large curtain rod that would never actually be used. Also, those are $5 twin flat sheets from Walmart that I painted some quick dashes on. NOTHING IN YOUR HOME HAS TO BREAK THE BANK.
On this second shelf, a couple plants and my thrifted bamboo plant holding bike. A little box for receipts and a jar of pom poms because POM POMS. A little vase my sweet friend Brynne gave me. And another picture of Nickerbean 1. Sorry, sweet Nickerbean 2. #secondchildproblems
Updated 12/19/16 I updated photos because I'm better at taking them now...if you're noticing different things on the shelves in different pictures it's because I'm changing it around all the time because I love to.
**If you love the look but aren't interested in building one yourself, I have a round up of desks in a similar style:
