Accessorizing an IKEA Expedit?

They say adding texture to a room is always a must when you're decorating, but I wonder if fur is really the way I should go when I start adding stuff to my new thrift store score Expedit.

Yeah, Emma wasn't convinced either.

What do you accessorize shelves with?

  1. Very cute!

    I have a white Expedit in my living room - I'm pretty sure neither of my dogs (one is a german shepherd) would fit in there!

  2. I have used a fabulous wallpaper on the inside back wall. Also some of those little pot lights to highlight special things.

  3. That is one cute doggy!Looking forward to your party. I love to share and get inspiration from others. Love bloggers.

  4. Oh, I don't know. . . seems to me that fur is very versatile! Goes with everything, right?

    She is one cute girl, isn't she?

  5. i just wish i had room for one of these awesome cubby hole walls - and i think you are accessorizing yours just fine :)

  6. I LOVE your dog! Whenever I see a picture of her, a smile instantly approaches my face <3

    I love using stamps or stencils. Lights are always a nice accent to shelving.

    Also, my FAVORITE tool to use for adding texture is... TISSUE PAPER! I love tissue paper... I'm addicted. You can fold it in different ways, crumple it or even tear it. It gives your project an amazing texture, especially if you layer. Also, I use mod-podge to make it stick.

  7. I cannot wait to see what you do! I have similar IKEA shelves and I find it hard to make them look stylish while also using them for storage and not looking cluttered.

  8. Oh my goodness she looks so cute! :-) Did you get any baskets to put in the shelf? I can't wait to see what you do with it! :-)

  9. She's so cute! Our Expedit is so full of books there's no room for accessorizing. No dusting, though :)


I love to hear your feedback! Please feel free to leave comments...just don't send me spam asking me to buy stuff off your website! I've got three kids and no money to purchase your magic weight-loss pill or bust enhancement, or whatever else you might be selling. Thanks, and I look forward to hearing from you! :)
