For years my family had an ugly bookcase hiding in our garage and last year I decided to give him some TLC and welcome him into my bedroom. I painted him up and gave him some of my best books. I am definitely not an artistic person (my art teacher actually advised me not to take the subject for GCSE), so I decided to go for the rustic/it’s meant to look rubbish look, which I feel turned out quite well.
I will be doing a post on how I painted this bad boy and some other pieces of furniture (I got the decorating bug after this bookcase), for other people like me who a) can’t afford new furniture and b) don’t do the arty farty stuff.
Anyway, I thought I’d let you into my room and nose around my bookcase.
PS, yes I do own the twilight books. I was thinking of taking them out when I took the pictures but then I thought that would be deceiving. I loved twilight – no shame…
