You first spotted my bookcase in this last post, Pottery Barn Knock off My Way, I was using it as a work table at the moment in my overly crammed studio.
This was one of those pieces from an unfinished furniture store, I have had it forever and it is fairly beat up. I am giving it a make over as I will need it for display in a local shop that has offered me some space for my art. Taking decent photos of it was impossible since I could not get around it very well in the limited space. Painting it was just as interesting, I get used to contorting myself.
I base painted it in the creamy white, used some Elmer’s white glue for a crackle then painted the sky blue over it. The inside of the shelves are the creamy white.
I had to step outside the studio for this shot, you cannot see the crackle finish but trust me it did turn out nice.
I had just started on the back today with some oops paint, in a nasty slimy yellow shade. I will go over it with the cream in case the back will be used for some display as well.
It was a gorgeously warm and sunny day for October. I am soaking up all the warmth I can before real winter hits.
I will be sure to get photos of my stuff in the shop once I take it there.
