Trashy Tuesday Dumpster Bookshelf Makeover
Happy Trashy Tuesday! I have been hanging out in the Dumpsters again, but my dirty ways are paying off.
Do you remember a few months back I got this bookshelf, My Junk Network tipped me off that it was waiting for me behind Target.
This is the sad state it was in. Not too bad, compared to a lot of the JUNK I find!
I patched up the side. Then added panels made from the bottoms of drawers to the side! I painted them with Chalkboard paint, then used Gorilla Wood Glue to secure them to the sides.
Once the Dumped Bookshelf was patched up, I turned my attention to the beauty phase. Time for my favorite CeCe Caldwell’s paints. I base painted the entire piece in Vermont Slate. Once this was dry, I went over the outside with one coat of CeCe Caldwell’s Silverhill Fog. This is a beautiful translucent Grey color. Unlike most of CeCe Caldwell’s paints, which are highly pigmented, Silvherhill Fog is lightly pigmented to give an ethereal, translucent look.
I left the inside of the bookshelf in Vermont Slate. I love the contrast of the Greys on my Dumpster Found Bookshelf!
Some new jewelry for the doors, and I have a brand new Bookshelf for my daughter’s room. Because this was a Dumpster Bookshelf Makeover, it cost me nothing!
Hope you have a totally Trashy week. If you enjoyed this Furniture Makeover using leftover parts, check out what I did with this Bookshelf turned rolling cart!
