Flickr Finds: Vintage Bookcase Finds New Life

There's a lot to love about this vintage bookcase, above and beyond the lovely puzzle of books that fill all the available space. Though winnab describes this piece as a work in progress, we're pretty impressed with the bookcase as is...

We love the staggered center dividers on the shelves- so much more interesting that the standard even dividers we normally see. Winnab plans eventually to add legs to the bookcase to lift it off the floor and to paint it as well; we can't wait to see the finished product when this DIY is complete.

Our favorite part of the bookcase is that it is a perfect example of re-using a piece that still has some life in it. Winnab found this treasure for only $20 at Community Forklift and saw past the imperfections to give this piece a new lease on life.

Thanks again to everyone who shares pictures with the DC Flickr group. We love getting a peek inside your homes, and sharing your inspirational spaces with the community.
