A Boring Borders Bookcase Reborn

A Boring Borders Bookcase Reborn

Does this bland, bulky bookcase get your creative juices flowing? Nope, ours neither. Would you believe us if we told you that Brittany (aka Pretty Handy Girl) transformed it into something magical? No? See for yourself:

After!

This bookcase started its life as a boring, oak-colored fixture from a Borders Books - just look at it now! It's backlit! Who's the DIY genius behind this transformation and how did she pull it off?

It was Brittany, aka Pretty Handy Girl, and we'd say "pretty handy" is an understatement. Do you remember her closet turned reading nook? She certainly knows how to wield a power tool, and this time she took a Dremel to an old, discounted bookcase to create something so fabulous it made our jaws drop. The backlit tree branches, moon, and owl are so sweet, and the technique is so inspiring! We're imagining designs with cars, trains, city skylines...the possibilities are endless!

Check out her blog, Pretty Handy Girl, for the full how to with plenty of pictures of the process.

Thanks Brittany!
