See why I call this bookcase 'Lacey'?
It has really pretty cut-outs that make it look that way to me.
The bookcase came to my door looking like this...
I loved the lines of this piece and knew what I was going to do with it. But first, I need to remind you about this previous bookcase...
See the before where someone had painted it and it was pink on the inside. I found out that they did NOT paint it pink, that is BLEED THROUGH that you are seeing. I primed it and the pink came though! I sealed it with Polycrylic sealer before I re-primed and painted two layers of paint on this piece. Yes, it is pretty and I blogged about it HERE, but eventually that darned ol' pink is coming though Again...
Very subtle but it's coming back to haunt me (see the pink streaks at the arrow?) and I just don't have the time or patience for a piece of furniture that is going to act up this way. That is unless YOU can give me the easiest solution to keeping this from happening!
In comes the new, albeit smaller, but sweeter bookcase!
I think she can stay for a while, but now that I look at this picture, I see I need to do a bit of rearranging!
