give an old book(case) a new color?
would you try to hide them and make them disappear into the wall or would you paint them in an accent color (think pear green) and make them stand out?
i have been toying with the idea of painting them since we moved in. but i hate them. and i don’t think painting them is going to make me like them any more. or will it? can you give an old book you hate a new cover and all of a sudden like it?
i was all set to give up on the idea until i saw this picture in the design within reach catalog over the weekend:
it was love at first sight.
but can my dysfunctional shelves ever make me swoon like these do?
