Cloud shelves

A little bit of white paint, some simple and inexpensive bathroom shelves from Ikea (both the shelves and knobs are from their Enudden series) and – tadah – some cloud shelves for the kids room!

I drew the clouds on paper first, then transferred them to the wall outlining the contures with a thin pencil line. After filling the cloud shapes with a first layer of white paint, the grey wall still shone through in some spots, so I applied a second layer after a few hours. Then I just needed to attach the shelves…

Aren’t the curved edges and the delicate design of these shelves so perfect?! And I find, together with the birch trees that I painted on one of the other walls, they just add such a nice and cozy atmosphere to the room! Kinda proud of myself! 😛

And while the shelves are certainly not made to hold a whole library of kids books or other heavy stuff, I find it is a great way to display some favorite items.

I am also thinking of getting a few more of these knobs for our walk-in closet… Or maybe for the guest room that we just painted and that still needs some finishing touches…? Let’s see! 😉

      Hi Lisa!
      I ordered the bunny online last year, but just checked and it seems they still have it! Here’s the link. I ordered it through the German website, but Hema is also available in the Netherlands, Belgium, France and UK I believe. I hope one of those options works for you or they deliver internationally if needed. The bunny is definitely one of my favorites among all our toys, too. The material is just so perfectly soft! Good luck!
