Before and After bookshelf.

Since I've been away for a while, I thought I'd catch up on
 some of the projects that we've completed in the past few months.
This project is one of my favorites.
Mostly because it's so much different from the before.
It all started when Levi took me to a medical salvage yard.
We saw some okay things like some old light fixtures but nothing worth buying in my opinion.
Then Levi showed me this shelf that he had seen before and had been wanting ever since.
I have to admit I did the "oh yeah, cool, okay, we can get it" out 
loud while in my head I was like "wtf, why?"
I was filling up with anxiety wondering where he was going to want to put this in the house.
You may understand when you see the before pictures, or you may be a genius 
like my husband and see the potential in things right away.
You can decide for yourself when you see the pictures below.

Here's the before pictures.

There it is, there you see the white/yellow/ brown, metal shelf with the bloated faux wood topper.
Well, are you thinking what I was?
Before you can decide that we're crazy, let me show you what it looks like now.

There it is, in all it's greatness. 
It's been cleaned up, and painted white.
It also has a new real wood topper. 
We always have an arsenal of white spray paint and the
 wood was about $30 and the shelf was $20. 
So we ended up spending around $50 and had some extra wood leftover.
I think it's a pretty cool transformation and it goes great with my faux taxidermy collection.
My love for white ceramic animals really has no boundaries.
Hope to see you back here tomorrow.
It's gonna be a hot post!
(I say that having no idea what I'm going to post tomorrow.)
Good day!


  1. So eventually you run out of space in your house and then you are going to open a boutique!!!! And I can't wait! :)

  2. Lol, well, I opened an online shop. But I would definitely like to open a furniture boutique, that would be awesome!
