This piece that I found at a garage sale (where else would I find it right?) was probably used as a shelf. I guess I am not sure because it was sitting on the ground in a garage when I found it but that is just what I am assuming it was used for. When I saw it though I thought what a perfect bookshelf to hold all of my children's books or it could even be used for magazines. So I flipped it over and tried some books in it and it works perfect. It's not huge so I figure I can put a few books in at a time and keep rotating them. I guess that is the teacher coming out in me. Kids always love when new things are introduced to them, so I figure once these books get old I can go into my stash and pull out some new ones. :) Anyhow on to the shelf...I sprayed it this blue color that I can't seem to get enough of lately and then roughed up the edges and wiped some brown paint all over it. I figured since it will be used in a child's room it will probably be a little banged up anyhow so why not start with it a little bit rustic. :)
Overall I am super pumped with how it turned out and I think it will look perfect in the future playroom or in my daughters room. A great way to keep the books organized!! It's always a good thing to have tools to organize the chaos right? I hope you have a great rest of your week! Take care.
