Thrifted Bookshelf Makeover
The return of sunshine and warm temperatures means a lot of good things.
One of them is the opportunity to paint. I picked up this little bookshelf at my local thrift store for $5.
It spent the winter in the garage holding shoes. This week I went after it with a can of Rustoleum’s Heirloom White spray paint.
It’s a nice creamy white. I chose not to distress it after painting.
One of the things I liked about the shelf was it’s open construction. With no sides or back it seems to use less space. I also like the character of the posts. Another interesting thing about it is the angled top shelf. It was clearly an easel or music stand at one point.
The good thing about this is that it can’t catch a bunch of clutter on the top shelf. The down side is that I have this plain piece of wood on top:
I think it might be fun to add a monogram.
Regardless, I’m happy to have it now holding the books that have been stacked on the floor in my bedroom. I added a few pieces of my collection of vintage silver. It’s nice to get them out of the cupboard.
I’m curious. Would you add a monogram or leave it as is? Any ideas?
Thanks for stopping by! Have a great day!
