Bookcase Makeover

We are in the process of renovating Olivia’s bedroom. I’m not ready for a big reveal post yet, but I did want to show some of the progress with this bookcase makeover.

This blue bookcase was in my bedroom growing up (purchased in the late 70’s.) It was originally – you guessed it – apple green to match my childhood bedroom. It was painted this baby blue sometime when I was in middle school. It has been in Olivia’s room since we move to this house in 2013.

Using Behr paint in Heart Breaker, I started by painting the outside of the bookcase.

Next I started on the inside of the bookcase using Behr Maui Mist. We also used this color for the walls and ceiling of her room. All paint came from Home Depot.

Check back soon for a total room reveal with this bookshelf styled! What do you think? Any home projects you are working on? What paint colors have you been using lately? Leave me a comment and let me know. Thanks for reading.
