This is a bookshelf that was given to us a few years ago. When we got it, it was white washed and had that pink hue to it. I hate to admit it, but we spray painted it white and threw it in my little boy's room. Now that I am in the process of re-doing his room I decided it needed a make over. A few coats of chocolate brown paint and a little bead board for the back panel.....much better!
