Bookshelf painted!

I finally did it! I can’t tell you how long I have been procrastinating about painting this bookshelf. Sorry there is no before picture, but trust me, it was really beat up and not it a good way.


I want to get some furniture wax with a little stain in it to go over the red but for now….I’m loving it!

Have a Wonderful Weekend 🙂 Rosie

  1. This looks wonderful! I’m a bit partial, since red is my favorite color…but, no kidding, it looks great against that perfect color wall.

    Good job! Enjoy the weekend..


  2. I think it looks great, it really fits in that corner. The two chairs and another items make thatcorner pop!! Katie

  3. Oh, Rosie….I LOVE it…It really turned out great….and, another good idea from YOU to ME. I love how you have the shelf above the bookcase. It makes such a fabulous statement whereas, along, neither would make such an impression. It gives the appearance of a much larger piece of furniture. I, too, have both a bookcase and a big, metal planter that hangs. Now, why in the world have I never thought to put them together??? DUH !! Stay tuned for a picture of it and, if it will be ok, I may use YOUR picture on MY blog to show where I got the inspiration…ok?? Boy, I love how we all learn from ea. other….my house is beginning to really come together better since I’ve been able to see all of the pretty ideas on here. Now, I’m excited and have to do some furniture re-arranging….Thanks, Sister friend….
    hugs, bj

  4. uhhhh, that should be “neither ALONE”, instead of ALONG….double DUH !!

  5. I just love that color Rosie! And the whole thing looks so pretty with the shelf above and the vignettes you have on it:>)

  23. Hi Rosie!

    You did a beautiful job on painting the bookcase! The red color is so uplifting. It looks so nice in that spot. I wish I had room for s book case in my kitchen — I have so many cookbooks I’d love to put in one place.

    Hug, Pat

  24. Rosie,
    Oh how I just love that red, hoping you will share the color with us as I have an armoire I want to paint red…and geez reds are soo hard.
    I love it.

  25. The red shelf is wonderful. My kitchen and family room is done in red and yellow. Your blog is adorable and I enjoy visiting it often. The chair is perfect where you have it. RoseMarie

  26. This just looks wonderful!! I love all the red!! Red and yellow look amazing together. Gorgeous dear Rosie!


  27. Is there a pattern I can get for the dining room chair cover you have here? I hope you don’t tell me you just made it up yourself! i have curved back chairs…4 of them and I would love to do this.

  28. I love that red you picked out! I have a bookcase too that would benefit greatly from a fresh coat of paint. Thanks for the idea!
