DIY Bookcase Makeovers
I recently acquired a second hand bookcase. It is a cheap one and it’s seen better days. I want to give it a makeover but wasn’t sure what to do with it because of the cheap paper laminate stuff it’s covered with. I’m not sure if I should strip it or just work over it.
So I went online to see what I could find and see if anyone else has given a cheap bookcase a chic makeover. Here is what I found:
I think the idea I love the most is Country Living’s DIY bookcase. They took old dresser drawers and transformed them into a bookcase. Now that’s a crafty repurpose and super upcycle. It doesn’t help me with my cheap bookcase but it does make me want to be on the lookout for old dressers and drawers.
What about you have you given a bookcase or any other furniture a crafty green makeover?
