The other day I had said to Joe how I wanted to get an old book case for my studio. You know, to stash some pretty things, and also have a nice space where I could utilize the shelves for packing materials, and crafting materials. I asked him where he thought I could find something like that and he says - non-chalantly.... There is a bookcase in the basement. SO! I ran down and what I found was an old, dusty opened back wooden bookcase. Down across the back was a board nailed on at an angle to keep the whole the square. I figured, well that might work. After we both had gone down and cleared it off of old junk and an inch of dust, the angled board on the back just wasn't doing it for me. I asked Joe if he could take that off and put something else on the back. He said, I have just the thing. I said can you paint it? and he said Sure! We went and picked out a nice bright lime color that I knew would look great with the Vintage map blue.
After a few hours of working on it, he asked if I wanted a piece of crown molding along the time. SURE! He lined the back with wainscotting, and attached the molding. The end result, a beautiful, solid painted bookshelf that totally embodies the cottage type feel that I love about my studio. You just never know what you can find in the basement I guess!
Just a warning, I will be removing all items from my shop for my trunk show on Monday.
So if you've been holding out for something, come Monday it may be snatched out from under you. Just sayin'!
This lovely is headed into the shop today.
Hope everyone is enjoying their 4th of July!
