Bookcase transformation

We have been collecting The 100 greatest books ever written from Easton Press for about 5 yrs now. Love the classics. And they are stacking up! I was on the search for an inexpensive bookcase and came across this one on KSL Classifies. $45 dollars later, a few coats of spray paint primer, Krylon's Ivory and Ralph Lauren's Glaze and Viola.....A NEW BOOKCASE! I love it, it really lightens up our room and helps out with our storage clutter. I cant wait to reclaim it someday too! The plan is when we build our future home we will have an office with built in bookcases and than I can have this piece for my doodads in my dining room:-) All good things! :-) I am so pleased how it turned out. (Now I will need a few days to rest my "painting muscles"; leg muscles are aching, and my right index finger that feels like its gonna fall off! lol )
Oh well....beauty hurts!
