bookcases are finally done!

I finally got my bookcases done.  It has only taken me a year and a half and two background colors.  The cases had a white background so I painted it this green first.  I lived with it for awhile (about a year) and decided I didn't really like it that much.  This is a strange room across from the dining room and I had been using it as a catch all for when I changed the seasonal decor.  

I decided a couple of weekends ago to paint it a soft yellow instead and got to decorating them. Here is the new color before I decorated.

It is hard to get good close ups as this space is quite small.  Here are the pictures that I was able to get.

 Now here are the rest of the close ups that I took.  I am going to recover the bench and I still need to work on my desk area that is off to the right.  When we had the internet installed this is the only room that they could put the main router in so I had to put my old table in here for my computer.  I will post those pictures when I get it all done.  Now for the close ups.

I think that I like the pale yellow the best.  I just didn't care for that shade of green that I had chosen first.


  1. Awesome job on the shelves. What a nice space to have. I have so many books, I'd have it filled to the rim with them lol! It makes a beautiful office space. Thank you for sharing it at to What We Accomplished Wednesdays. Have a great week! ~Deborah
