Bookshelf Makeover

When Kendra at Pots, Pans & Paintbrushes and  bought her house, the owners graciously left behind two ugly brown laminate bookshelves. Rather than chunking them or using them for garage storage, she decided to give them some TLC.

With a coat of white paint and patterned wallpaper applied as background, now the shelves are cute as can be in Kendra’s office.  Not bad for a pre-makeover price of $0.00, right?  I like the wallpaper she chose to cover the back of these shelves–it’s a subtle color, but the bold pattern gives the shelves an eye-catching effect that is really appealing.

    Did you sand down the shelves? and what kind of paint did you use? Can’t wait for your answer to start my project. Thanks :-)
