Bookcase Makeover With Chalk Paint
This bookcase was dark and tired looking... we transformed it with gray chalk paint ~ now its photo worthy !
We chose "Coco" Annie Sloan chalk paint, and went to work
What a difference !
In the process...
The color brought out the great details in this piece ..
We even painted over the hinges and knobs and distressed it minimally
Enjoyed the project?

nice job. I'm thinking to do this to a 5 piece bookcase/TV cabinet. I was going to keep the large oak TV cabinet on the center of the one wall, paint it and move the other 4 pieces (2 cabinets with glass doors light inside and 2 corner bookshelves both one on each side of our fireplace to give the illusion of a built in wall unit. Then paint them the white I chose for my woodwork. We've had this large piece since 1988, and know I would have to give it away, so instead might as well give it new a life and re-purpose it. Your paint project convinced me to do it :)
