Weekend Project: Painting the Bookshelves

The paint is purchased. There is no turning back now! Over a year ago, my mom suggested painting the back of our living room bookshelves to add a bit of color to the room. Doing so would also highlight the books, knickknacks, and the like on display in this focal point of our home.

I have gone back and forth-- and back and forth-- over whether we should do it. What if I hate it? What if the color is off? I have finally realized that if I hate it I am only out the $13.09 that I spent on paint last night at Lowe's. I can paint it back. No. Big. Deal.

So...wish me luck! I will post before and after pictures once it's complete!

Here's a peek at some of my inspiration pictures:

Not the right palette for our house-- but I love the look.

This is the same concept-- but for the kitchen. Can you imagine how boring that would be if it was all white?

Maybe a little bright...but doesn't it draw in your attention?

I am hoping that my results look a little more like this example. I am using a similar shade of green as a back drop...

Thoughts? Advice?


All my best,
