BEFORE AND AFTER!!!!

Look at this sad little bookshelf...all torn down and empty..I got this from my sister in exchange for some home decor like pictures, plants and stuff...Well, this is what I got..it has good bones and even though is been renovated into a gun case- I decided it was time to do a makeover on this loveee
I think it was a bookcase to begin with and then made into gun cabinet and Holly made it into a shelf system and I (meaning Danny and I) turned it into a bookcase. whew..So many changes ..it sounds like PMS!

The door above had hinges on it..but, one was broke off. I am glad Holly kept it cuz Danny turned it into a drawer!


He added some bead board to the back and gave it some new shelving to bulk it up.....o how I love that man.....


And look at it now! He added two dresser pulls from a different project and painted it with a gallon of paint I got at Big Lots for $6.99! I love it! Any extra time Danny gets he tries to get in honey- do -projects..He is a good man and is one of a kind and I am soooo glad he is mine! Now I'm getting closer to my living room reveal! Yes! thanks for stopping by! Love ya! Mean it! Stephanie
PS-Say a little prayer for my Camalee..Im home with her today because she has a very sore throat and has put out her back and pulled a muscle in her thigh..from volleyball..ugh poor girl! Thanks!
