My hubby had already stripped the old paint off of it and it was just sitting there screaming to be painted. We got this bookcase from his great grandmother, so I am glad that we pulled up our sleeves and did a little painting...even our little sleeves were pulled up!
We went with a nice light khaki color...which is the same color we used in Jonathan's room. He was so excited to help! His room, however is still a work in progress, so that will have to be another post on another day! BUT...here is how the bookcase turned out. I love the detail on the top!
