DIY Repurposed Bookshelf:
I have had these two bookshelves for about 15 years, not bad for press-board! I wasn’t ready to donate them so I kept them in my office closet. I liked the storage capacity, but they didn’t match the decor anymore. I thought I would try some paint, put a new backing on and change up the storage bins. I went for a wood & metal look for my office so if I could pull this off, it should look really cool.
Both primed & painted, one backing done, the other still left to do….
Primer Brand – Zinsser Bulls Eye
Paint Brand – Americana Decor- Chalky Finish – Everlasting Color
Backing – Vinyl Flooring from Lumber Liquidators! I purchased this flooring to make a plank wall on our kitchen island, that post to come at a later date when project is finished. I had extra so I used the vinyl flooring as the backing for my bookshelf. I was going to use pallet wood but thought that would make the shelves heavier than I wanted.
