the bookcase project

11 Nov

So I finally found a bookcase.

As much as I wanted the one from Home Decorators, I just wasn’t going to be ok with spending over $400.

So I was pretty happy when I found this baby for $60 off craigslist.

It’s pretty butt ugly right now so I’m super excited to transform it.

I have so many great ideas for it.

1. Paint it a bright white. yummy.

2. Add a back and paint it a dark gray or yellow.

3. Possibly add some detail to the sides. Like these fretwork panels from O’verlays
