Bookshelf Makeover

I've always wanted to paint furniture and this is my first attempt!  My husband was very skeptical when I came home with this scratched up bookshelf that had a slight thrift store smell.  To be honest, I was doubtful too but I figured I had only spent $20 on it and even if it didn't turn out it would be good practice.  I used Americana Decor Chalk paint in Everlasting and Treasure and sealed it with Americana Decor Clear Wax. 

I decided to do white with a blue background when  I saw something similar on Liz Marie Blog (one of my absolute favorite blogs!)  I love blue but my heart belongs to neutral decor so I may be painting it all white in the future.  What do you think?  PS. if you like my French Herb Botanical print, you can print one off for yourself HERE.

I really enjoyed painting and distressing.  I think I may be hooked now and I can't wait to tackle my next project! I'd love for you to follow along with me!  Find me on Facebook, Pinterest, and Instagram !
