Hi everyone- I don’t know why I never noticed this, but I have a lot of dark wood furniture! And, I am over it. Yes, my son would say, “hashtag suburban mom probs.” So when I saw this before/after project on BH&G.com of a very similar bookcase I knew I could do this.
Here’s my bookcase. We bought it at the Pottery Barn floor sale a few years ago. And, I am over the dark wood furniture in our house! Over. It. So when I saw the inspiration above I knew it would work! Thank you BH&G! It’s been all over the house. You could said this bookcase gets around! Ba dum dum!
Here is the after. I primed it and then painted it with Behr Mascarpone!
I am really happy with it. It is so much lighter and I ended up putting it in my office! Do you notice the legs? I left them the original stain. I kinda like it! The color lightened up my office and provides great storage! Big office reveal coming in a few weeks! After taxes!
