Painted Bookshelf Idea

Cool Idea: Make It Pop With Paint

I've got my eye on a pretty little bookshelf on Craigslist, and as soon as the seller and I agree upon the price, I'm giving it a makeover. It's clear that this piece of furniture is going to need a lil' TLC, but I'm in the mood for a project, so I've also been looking for ways to make it pop. I think I've discovered the perfect solution. Instead of painting the whole thing one fun color, I love the idea of using a complementary color on the inside of the shelves. The two tones give extra depth, but also make an otherwise boring item command attention. Now the hardest part is just going to be deciding on which two colors to use.

I just did this with a plain pine bookcase from Books and Bookshelves in Duboce Triangle. The outside is a glossy white and the inside is a creamy yellow, and it sits in my bathroom and holds baskets for my towels and bath products :-)
