Before & After: Retro Bookshelf

Before & After: Retro Bookshelf

You might remember Carolyn's office redo that had us all singing her praises this past summer. Well, she's at it again creating a mid century modern inspired DIY bookshelf--let's check out the amazing "after pic" under the jump!

Carolyn takes the basic, mid-sized bookshelf and adds the legs from a mid century modern stool. Just by adding legs it instantly makes the bookshelf feel airy and light. A coat of bright white paint unifies the top and bottom and a ruler adds a bit of kitsch to the top shelf. Also--take a closer look at the back lining of the bookcase (Carolyn created a faux wood grain finish). Stay tuned tomorrow morning when we'll tell you how she achieved this fun look.
