Home Renovation Project #1
















We got this bookcase from my parents and after having it in our office for 5 years we decided to give it a little makeover. Andy was glad to finally have a bookcase that wasn't "a weird pink color". I tried to explain that it wasn't pink...it was maroon...but that didn't work too well.
We picked black paint....but after putting on the first coat we have come to realize that the paint mixer guy at Wal-mart was either blind...or bored because it's not really black. Oh well....it's starting to look good and its no longer maroon, which is what matters to Andy.
























***side note: I don't think he actually ever even noticed the color until I had him move it out of the room. He has never commented on it before and we've had it since we got married.***

It looks great!! I can't tell you how many things we've gotten from DI or family and we've painted it, and it looks like a new piece of furniture. Good luck moving.
