This past weekend I was driven inside by the merciless heat and humidity, after a couple of hours in the garden. After cooling off and rehydrating, I was looking for something else to do inside. It never takes long around here to find something that needs doing. I had books living in my closet ever since early spring, when I had begun my bedroom remodel. So far, the paneling has been put up and painted, I am working on the floor, and decided to paint the section where my bookshelf was going to be placed. I didn’t really like how the bookshelf looked anymore, so I decided a facelift was in order. This is the bookshelf before:
I was originally going to paint it white, to match the walls, but was out of white paint. But I did have some of the grey paint that I painted the ceiling with. In the end, I like the grey much better.
Then, I thought to add a little more pizzazz, I would line the shelves with some really cool contact paper that I had in my craft stash, and here is the shelf, all done and in place.
