Updated Bookcase

Good morning!  I cannot believe that it's almost Thanksgiving.....time is just flying by.  Seriously....this is my most FAVORITE time of the year and I would love to slow it down a bit.  There are so many fun things to do with your family this time of year.  My son and I were flying solo this past week while my husband went deer hunting.  He's coming home with a buck today and a HUGE smile as well.  I am not a huge fan of venison, however, I guess I will be surfin' the internet for some yummy recipes.

I purchased this book case a few years back at a garage sale.  It was in good condition, however it just looked really dark. 

So, I gave it a coat of Kilz primer and then painted the back of the bookcase a fun green color.  The rest of the bookcase received a coat of my favorite Benjamin Moore white paint, which runs a bit higher in price but is worth every cent.  Here is an after picture of the bookcase.  I like it better looks brighter and cleaner!

Have a great day!!!
