We have now been living in Michigan a couple of months now & I’m finally starting to do things that I love that are not necessarily just for our Michigan casa. Things like creating art, painting furniture, & stocking our booth. This past week I painted a homely looking bookshelf for our booth & you’ll never guess what color I painted it… gray. Seriously the few pieces of furniture I have painted since we have been in Michigan, like this chair [here], have all been gray. I promise I have another furniture makeover coming very soon that is not gray & I will branch out to new colors soon. I just love gray. It’s different than white, it’s neutral, it’s warm, yah.. I just love it. This little leggy bookshelf needed some love & I think the gray paint gave it a whole new life that it needed.
I mean it’s just simply cute. I can see this piece being used in a little kids room as a bookshelf, in an office, as a small entertainment center, a drink bar in a dining room or kitchen, a coffee bar, I mean the list can go on. If our house wasn’t bursting at the seams with furniture, I would keep it for myself. But alas I’m trying to work on that whole not being a hoarder thing. It’s going well so far. Here is what the bookshelf before I got my hands on it…
I keep trying to not get attached to this bookshelf, but man is it cute! This little guy will be in my booth soon & ready to go to a new home. What do you think of this quick little bookshelf makeover? Are you loving gray furniture as much as me? Or is it just my obsession?
