Giraffe Bookshelf

For some reason, having kids made me more crafty.  

Does that make any sense at all?  

I guess I just want them to have cute decorations for their rooms.  And because I'm so cheap, I figure it is better to make it myself than buy it from a store...

This was one of the very first projects that the hubs and I created for our little munchkin's nursery.  
Doing projects that involve paint and paint stripper are hard (almost impossible) to do safely while pregnant, so I couldn't do it alone.  The paint stripper that we used was the no fume stuff, and it was a beast to get all that dang paint off!!  It's a good thing I have a rock star husband that was willing to do most of the work on this one :)

When it came time to painting this little shelf, I knew exactly what I wanted to do.  I have this strange addiction to giraffe's, so I knew when our daughter was born that I wanted a giraffe nursery.  And since I am not an artist, I knew that painting giraffe skin was a no go.  Instead of paint, we covered the back of the bookshelf with giraffe print fabric.  So easy, and I love the way it turned out!
