The Bookcase, Phase 1




Today I began painting our oh-so-brown-oh-so-dark bookcase.

It only took me two years to start.

I can't even explain how much better I feel about it now, even though I'm not finished yet. (Tom's not-so-pretty things are hidden behind the pictures on the bottom shelf.)

Pro-activity is so great.

Now, if I can only get up the gumption to paint the entire wall.

Here's the 'before pic.' The way, way before pic from two years ago:

Your white china looks nice on the dark bookcase, but since it is so dark and kinda blends into the wall it took me a minute to find the actual book case.
