As you know, we’ve been taking on a lot of decorating and refurnishing projects in our home. Today I’m sharing a simple but very versatile addition to our home.

I love that Sauder furniture includes so many options with clean simple lines making nearly every piece extremely versatile. I ordered a simple white bookshelf from Sauder because I needed something in Ezra’s closet, in a spot in our family room and also by our front door and wanted the option of using it in any of these spaces. I also knew I wanted to attempt to wallpaper the back for an added pop of pattern and thought something clean and simple like this 3-shelf bookcase was a good choice.

Ordering the furniture was easy. One of my pieces arrived slightly damaged and after submitting a request for replacement parts, I received a shipping notification within hours and the parts arrived just days later. I was blown away by this simple process.

When it came time to build the shelf, I decided to take it on without my husband and with the baby by my side. Ezra played on the floor next to me but as anyone who has ever had a young baby knows, they don’t last long in one particular place or activity. Fortunately, I was able to build this in less than 20 minutes and Ezra still had a few minutes of floor play left in him.

I love that adding wallpaper to this piece was so easy. I used a neutral patterned removable wallpaper that is basically like a giant sticker and it took less than five minutes to finish it.

Right now this piece is in our family room housing random items including Bodhi’s favorite animals, a small basket with some of Ezra’s toys and a few other things, but I’ll be sharing how I can use this shelf in two other spaces in a few weeks. Adding versatile furniture to our collection is so important for me to help make our house functional and practical. This piece fits right in with great simple style and the fun neutral pattern.
