Hannah loves books… so she has a fair few and these are constantly being added to since I am a reader and like to encourage my daughter to read.
She also has a growing collection of teddy bears. My in-laws love giving them to Hannah despite her (and me) not liking teddy bears!
The only place I have had for them is in a two shelf bookcase that was bought at a garage sale years ago. I think I paid $5 for it. It was in a very scuffy condition. I have not bothered to paint or pretty it.
But I realised I needed something for Hannah’s books and teddy bears so I grabbed some glossy red and pink paint and gave it a few coats. I had to apply a primer to it first since the bookcase had been varnished at some point.
So after some thinking and painting last week, we finally installed her new old bookcase all pink and red:
I love it. It’s vibrant coloured and happy. Just the colours to match her vivid personality.
