Cute Little Bookcase

Ok.. so it wasn’t so cute to start with… don’t let it’s small size fool you, this is a sold and heavy piece!

Here it is after I painted it in ASCP Florence… just a beautiful vibrant turquoise!

I distressed it more than I usually do, but the dark oak popping through the bright blue is just perfect!

I applied a coat of Minwax Paste Wax to it then buffed it with a combination of 0000 steel wool and a soft cloth.

I love the combination of the silver and turquoise… but I think it would also be striking with white…

My favorite little dish of the group…

And just to show you that I am getting into the Fall spirit I have my Fall wreath up! Can I put my faux pumpkins out yet or should I wait?

I just think this little “bookcase” is adorable and would look great in just about any room! For me I can see it in my bathroom with big fluffy white towels and clear apothecary jars filled with soaps and salts!

And if you wondering “what’s up with all the silver pieces?” I picked these up at the same time I picked up the silver punch bowl, cups & trays… this is just a small portion of the finds I got that day… they are some very pretty pieces!

Thanks for stopping by!

Until next time…

About Susan @ Uniquely Yours or Mine

Hey there! You want to know more about me? Well here's a little bit... I'm the lucky wife of a Super Awesome Husband (SAH) and a mother of 3 wonderful girls. We moved to Louisville, KY in 2013 from Richmond, VA where I was refinishing, repairing and painting furniture as a serious "hobby". Since moving I have been spending most of my time designing and updating our new-to-us home, but I do enjoy getting out and exploring my new town as much as possible!
