Do you ever buy a piece of furniture for your home, stare at it every day and then wonder, "why did I do that?". Well, I did this for months after I brought this beat up bookcase into my home. What I loved about it was: the size (it fits perfectly in my small hallway), the shelves which provide additional storage and the clean lines of the piece. But no matter how I styled it, it just wasn't working for me:
Not sure why it took me so long to paint it. I guess I couldn't settle on a colour I could live with...so very Libra of me. It takes me forever to make a decision!
After a quick trip to Home Depot I realized the only colours I wished to use were in the wall paint section. I took the leap and bought 2 samples of Behr Marquee in Frosted Silver. The best part: total cost was $8! (sample cans!)
The result was incredible. Not only did it cover the bookcase evenly, the paint was flawless after it settled with barely any prep. And I have to add, this is not a sponsored post, I am simply a fan of the product because it worked so well!
The bookcase has a laminate top and brown legs which we left unpainted. I love how the lighter colour takes up less visual space and complements the items so nicely.
Have you worked on any Spring project or DIY's lately?
