My Childhood Bookshelf Gets a Facelift.

I've had this bookshelf since I was a kid.  It's moved with me 11 times.  It's still standing strong...but drowning in it's outdated skin. 

 

It was time for a face-lift.  It was time for paint.  My husband decided then would be a good time to take the kids out  run some errands.  He was right; I'm a messy painter.

 

 

I wanted to distress it a bit, but my husband really likes the color as it is.  SO, for now, he wins.  It's adds a great POP! to the room!  Now, what will I paint next?

I love that eggshell blue! I actually used to have a hen that laid eggs just a shade lighter. Beautiful painting job.

Great makeover and i love the color!! I am on the hunt for two matching book cases to use on the sides of a single bed to change it into a trundle bed look. This gave me some inspiration when I find them...

Hugs,
Debbie
