Before and After ~ Bookcase

We bought this bookcase from a charity shop a while back for just £10.

You may remember seeing it in my sons bedroom (at the end of his bed) here:

But now it has been painted and is in my new bedroom looking all white and lovely!

I didn't sand it, I just painted it with Annie Sloan 'Old White' and then two coats of Farrow and Ball 'Strong White' and I'm really pleased with it.

Amazing how a quick lick of paint can transform a piece of furniture. I have lots more to paint this year, what projects do you have on your list for 2014?

Thank you for reading xx

    1. Thank you! Lovely to know I have inspired you! It really is so easy to do, I couldn't recommend it more. Shopping for your project is the best part - enjoy xx

  2. A coat of paint totally transforms most items of furniture. Yours has turned out lovely, perfect for a bedroom and a bargain price too.

    1. Thank you - I do love a bargain! Really pleased with the result x


I would love to hear from you xx
