Oh gosh this week has been tough for me. On top of school and editing for photography, Reagan and I came down with a cold/sore throat issue yesterday. It's always one of those weeks you really don't have time to sit down and be sick. But of course my body was begging to lay down. So I laid on the couch with Reagan all day and did homework. We snuggled, we coughed and we sniffed all day but we did it together...awwww.
Luckily today I feel a little better and I am moving along. I am so excited to share my bookshelves with you this week for our Get Your DIY On linky party. This month's theme on Sunday is Furniture Makeovers! After painting over my desk, I was itching to paint the matching bookshelves a few months ago. I just needed a lighter corner over here when I was working. So one Sunday a few weeks ago Mike and tackled the shelves and painted them white. They did take about 3 coats of paint but the shelves were originally mahogany so it was pretty dark.
Here is a picture before of the shelves....
And here they are after...
I grabbed these amazing crates from Walmart online to hold all the crap I didn't want displayed. I added some nic naks and then rearranged them about a million times.. it's my OCD coming out- I may change the arrangement again but for now, I am happy.
By the way, I am showing off my furniture redo but check out my amazing co-hosts' projects below! Fabulous!
