While at Goodwill a couple weeks ago I found this little bookcase. It is not antique, it isn't even vintage, so it is not the type of thing that usually catches my eye. It actually had stickers on it that said, :Inspected by 5". But I knew I could make it cute and I wanted it. Janae said I should get it because she hates it when I moan about something I didn't get at Goodwill. At Goodwill I never have buyers regret--it is that I didn't buy it regret that gets to me.
So this is how it looks now that I have "fixed it up"..
This is how it looked when I bought it...
I knew that with the paneled back, and the detailed edges I could make this cute!
I painted the inside of it Martha Stewart's River Mist--the same as the teacup cabinet which is now sitting on top of it.
The perfectionist in me is saying it isn't done yet. Even my husband agrees it needs some little feet. I don't like it when I can't see under something and it needs a little more height so it is in better proportion to the teacup cupboard. I also think that the top of it needs the lace technique--like I did here. Then it will be perfect! I plan to use it as a place to keep all my vases..that soon I will need easy access to because I love flowers in the house!
Thanks for visiting!
