One for me, One for you.

The right side of my fireplace hasn't looked right to me since my Living Room re-do and I think I have finally found a better piece of furntiure to go there.

I was thinking a bookshelf but my dear sweet boxer likes to help him self to books.

Hard to stay mad at that face!

Back to the book shelf.. the one I found has re-purposed windows for doors.

 Book eating problem solved.

I really love the chippy back

When I bought it, it was all the light blue that you see on the inside shelves. Very pretty, but not against my light blue walls, so I just painted the outside and bottom shelf darker. I may paint over the rest of the light blue too, but I haven't decided.

I also re-finished a new piece to sell.
It's made by Ethan Allen and the top is one long drawer and it's just two drawers on the right (more practical for storage than 4 narrow drawers I think.) Inside the faux shutter door is a shelf.

Here it is waiting for its new home!

  1. I absolutely love the chippy back inside your bookshelf AND the color you used on the Ethan Allen piece. Glad I found you at Mod Vintage Life. Blessings to you, Patti

    1. Thank you Patti! I've tried to re-create that chippy look so many times, but there's nothing like the real deal :)
