At the November flea market, I saw a pair of beautiful corner bookshelves for $50. I had already purchased a few other items so I decided to wait a bit. Well, while I was waiting, I became obsessed with what I could turn them into. I envisioned colors and textures in many varieties. However, my own booth became busy and I couldn't make it back for a few hours. When I returned, they were gone. Never again!!!! (Ok, Christie, I know I have said that before but I mean it this time).
Now the Makeover:
I purchased this bookcase from one of my favorite "suppliers". It is identical to the ones I was dreaming of so I grabbed it right away. I wanted to try a new color combination so I went with Primer Red and Old Ochre. I completed the look with a healthy coat of Dark Wax. Here is the finished look:
|I left some of the imperfections from the previous owners staining explosion knowing that I wanted the dark wax to get into the cracks and crevasses.|
|I love the completed project. I am always amazed at what happens when the wax goes on. It is a completely different look.|
