Bookshelf Before and After

You've probably seen the bookshelf in my craft room. 

 I painted it white and added the pink scrolly wall paper to the back that I had found at the thrift store, distressed it and added glass knobs.

It's a major improvement from it's "before days" back when we lived in the land of green carpet....
 In fact, I am pretty sure all of my decorating is a major improvement since we lived in the land of green carpet. {Would you believe it if I told you that the outside of the house that had the green carpet was also the exact same shade of green?}

  9. That is so dang pretty Nikki!! Lovin' the french sconce too! And I do believe "you've come a long way baby" from the green carpet days! *winks*

  10. Love the makeover. I used to have green carpet in my bedroom and bathroom when we built our house in 1995. What was I thinking? Would love to have you link to my party.

  11. Beautiful craft room Nicki. Still love those floors. I bought a bed ruffle the other day at a garage sale to cover a table...thanks for sharing that idea.
