Bookcase Makeover

Summer 2013 755 Summer 2013 754

Last week I got bored of my of bookcases and decided to make a transformation.  A fresh look always makes me happy.  I had  some leftover paint from my closet makeover and well …ding,ding,ding…I used used it for this project.

I removed the shelves and applied paint just on the back wall of the bookcase. This color (Applesauce Cake) is a couple shades darker than the color on the walls. Perfect for the bookcase to pop and stand out.  I went ahead and paint the edges.

Then rolled on the first coat.

Once the first coat dried, I painted the second coat of paint.

When both coats were dried completely, I inserted the shelves back in and placed all the decor and pictures back on the shelves. It’s easy and quick but a huge impact.

Little projects like these can liven up a space. So go ahead and revamp your bookcase or niche – all it takes is a few hours.

Oh – and have fun with it!

Happy Revamping,
