Bookcase makeover

Check out what Amy did to this bookcase in her hallway!

I decided to work on a small project a few weekends ago.  I desperately wanted to change the colour of the bookcase in our hallway.  We had found it at a re-store and it really needed some love. Note the uneven paint and scratches:

After a quick trip to Home Depot I realized the only colours I wished to use were in the wall paint section. I took the leap and bought 2 samples of Behr Marquee in Frosted Silver.  The best part: total cost was $8!

The result was incredible. Not only did it cover the bookcase evenly, the paint was flawless after it settled with barely any prep. And I have to add, this is not a sponsored post, I am simply a fan of the product because it worked so well!

The bookcase has a laminate top and brown legs which we left unpainted.  I love how the lighter colour takes up less visual space and complements the items so nicely.
