So far, I shared with you how I painted the bookcases with milk paint. The photos in that post were styled to show off the two bookcases. Pretty pictures but not reality. And certainly not practical!
Today I will be sharing the reality photos of the bookcases. What it actually looks like and what I have done to make it functional.
Pretty and practical bookcases the easy way, because we don’t want thing to be too hard!
You can also spot my Empire State building wood pieces. They were pieces of wood that were found out on the road. I believe they may have been legs to something. But I think they look like my beloved Empire State Building and so I use them as decor.
And moving onto the second bookcase. The top area has more magazine files in blue and in map decoupage. There’s that fabric again! This time on a phone book.
So you can see I’ve been able to create lots of storage space frugally. What did I use? Old magazine files I already had and a few cardboard boxes. With a little imagination and creativity, and a bit of paint, fabric and mod podge I have given the bookcases a unified look while at the same time giving myself lots of storage. Upcycling at it’s best!
Which version do you prefer, with or without the pomegranate branches?
