Quite some time ago I found this solid wood bookcase at one of my favorite thrift stores for $9.99. It reminded me of the Jenny Lind style furniture with it’s turned posts and I liked how the bottom shelf was wider than the other two so we could put bigger/bulkier items down there. But to make it a bit more playful and cute for Emma’s room it needed to be painted. I recently brought it out to the garage and lightly sanded it and wiped it down with liquid sandpaper/deglosser since it had a heavy varnish finish.
And here’s how it looks in Emma’s room (she’s using it to display her collection of legos and my little pony toys). I love how it picks up some of the turquoise in her new duvet cover.
And a side-by-side look:
Emma’s room is starting to come together and it has been really fun getting her feedback about everything.
Thanks for looking.
