My Snow White Bookcase

I just finished one of my very first mini projects in the new apartment. Finally painted my dull-looking brown bookcase in white and I really love how it turned out. Sadly, I forgot to take a decent "before" photo to share, but you'll have an idea how brown it used to look like in this post. I was too excited that I started painting right away and at long last after three days, it's all MISSION ACCOMPLISHED. :)

To be honest, my paint job wasn't really flawless, but I'm beyond proud that this piece now blends seamlessly with the rest of my furniture and also looks clean and very easy on the eyes no matter how many stuff I shove inside it. Planning to fill up my Snow White baby with lots and lots of books. I know this one would be an even harder task to complete considering how pricey books cost in this part of the globe, so for now it's where I'm storing some of the random trinkets I collect. Here are a few shots of my new favorite spot in my apartment:


Sorry if these photos look odd. I've been trying out this HRD imaging method a lot these days that plays out with the contrast of the photos I take. I think it looks kinda cool and artistic. :)

Is there any particular furniture or piece in your home you wanna revamp? Are you working on any home projects right now?

  1. That looks really pretty.

    I have so many projects for the home. We've barely touched it since we moved in so it's still pretty lifeless.

  2. Very nice! I am always too lazy to paint anything, but I really should. You can make old stuff look totally new with just paint!

  8. I wish I could do some home DIY! I can't do anything with my flat at uni because we aren't allowed to and my room was redecorated at home last year but I had next to no say it what it looked liked - I'm certainly not allowed to be let loose creating my own designs on any of the furni. I swear when I get my own place I'm going to go nuts DIY'ing everything! x

Sorry for sounding such a fantard but I have been following her blog for such a long time ever since I got my first Blythe.
