Bookcase: Before & After



I bought this old mdf bookcase at a consignment store.  With a little love and attention this is how it turned out.  I added beadboard to the back.  I used Miss Mustard Seed's paint formula.  She is a genius.  I painted the entire bookcase with "creamy" by Sherwin Williams and then I rubbed on and rubbed off Ralph Lauren's Faux effects glaze tinted with expresso bean.  I amVERY happy with how it turned out.  I painted the top with a chocalate brown paint that i mixed myself to the right color that I wanted.  You can really see the beadboard below.







Make it a GREAT DAY!!!  Be sure and check us out tomorrow.  We will be having a sister vs. sister knock-off contest!!!
