make me pretty – little bookcase

February 6, 2014

I have a small wall that I needed a bookshelf for. It needs to be so narrow, I looked and looked and couldn’t find anything that would fit. I was about to pay full price retail, which is something I rarely do, when I stumbled onto the perfect little book shelf at the thrift store. It’s solid wood, had a nice little carved detail at the top and it’s the perfect size! It just needed a new paint job.










I painted it a light bluish gray and then did a darker coat on top. Then I got my boys to help me sand off a lot of the first layer. I now have the perfect spot for my kind of out of control cook book collection!
