My daughter in law has been bitten with the bug as well. I haven't gotten pictures of the changes we have made in their home, but I promise I will soon.
Back at ChukaDi Acres I have been busy slinging paint. In a past blog, I covered the back of our built in bookcase with fabric. (Small Change to a built in bookshelf)
I was pretty happy with myself on that little change, but it still needed more. I set and watch TV in the evening, and look at the book case.
We have a very large black entertainment center that is pretty close to the bookcase. I have looked at the way the molding comes into play with the bookcase. Exactly how I was going to paint this had finally come to light.

I used the CeCe Caldwell Milk Paint on the built in desk, and was so happy with the color, I decided to do the same on the bookcase.
I am telling you, it is such an easy task. The paint is really so easy and wonderful to use. I let it dry overnight, and today I put a clear coat of wax on it. It is now finished, and I think it really changed the look of an 'oh so "blah" bookcase. I am very happy with the way the rock on the fireplace blends into the color I chose.
I will be interested in your thoughts, and I also want to know if you have been busy painting as well. What is your next project!!??
