The last time I showed you my bookcases they looked like this:
I like them kind of plain, not too much stuff in there, white is perfectly fine with me, but I love to see white bookcases where the back has been painted any color, yellow, green, blue.. and I wanted to do that. The problem is I cannot settle for a specific color and feel afraid that after all that paint job I'll get tired of it quickly.
The perfect solution came a couple of weeks ago when I spotted this cute shelf liner with the quatrefoil design, for only six dollars (Tj Maxx), it was something good to try.
The liner went on pretty quickly and easily, with no paint or glue necessary. Now I was ready to decorate the bookcases.
And for that, I had big help! My number one helper volunteered himself to clean some of the silver pieces I got at the flea market. First time doing this chore and he was amazed by the change!
We also got some branches and other decorations. Here is the first bookcase,
I love the vibrant shades of red and orange on those little "berries".
As soon as my friend Katie from Creatively Living posted about the Dollar store black crows, I knew I had to go and get some!
Some little white pumpkins,
and my favorite! Mr. Owl, by the side of a bird's nest I found while biking with my son.
Candy corns are disappearing fast,
and some of the shiny and tarnished pieces of silver.
A black crow on a branch at the top.
Spray painted pears,
books, other silver pieces and white vases. I love the white vase with the flower design, it was a flea market find, only 25 cents.
And last but not least my latest indulgence, a little bike I couldn't put back on the shelf when I saw it at Target. I love bikes and I was looking for one but they were usually too big for my liking, this one was the perfect size and style, the price, not too good! 30 bucks! I'm feeling a bit guilty for spending so much on it, but I guess sometimes it is OK to give ourselves little presents ;)
And here they are, my two fall bookcases side by side!
Let's see for how long I can keep this shelf liner!
