Don’t you just love this bright, fun pop of color?!? Brandi from The Junque Market used a combination of Cheesecake and Perfection to liven up this bookcase.

When we came across this bookcase, I knew I just had to have it for a project. These days, we are snatching up every piece of furniture we can find. This bookcase was no different. It needed some love, attention, and a new home.

It was in fair condition for its age and even had the original glass doors. The doors, however, were a little scratched and just not up to my standards, so we removed them. After that, the hunk had to repair a few chipped spots here and there with wood putty. So far, so good. Now on to the fun part!

This bookcase is the perfect size for a child’s room. So, I imagined, if I were a little girl, what color would I choose for a bookcase in my own room? Of course, I would choose my favorite color – purple. But purple isn’t just purple when it comes to Country Chic Furniture and Home Décor Paint. Purple is Perfection. Yes, Perfection! It is an absolutely adorable, yet adventurous, color.

After my two coats of Perfection were dry, this bookcase was so smooth and silky! I just couldn’t get over how silky it was and kept telling the hunk to “just feel this”. Hehe. It’s the little things in life. It was also at this point that I realized I should have painted the back of the bookcase first. Doh! We will just have to call that a lesson learned on my part.

To liven up the bookcase, I wanted to go with a lighter shade of Country Chic Furniture and Home Décor Paint for the back and sides. For this, I chose the color Cheesecake. I had been dying to try this color since I received it and now was the time. I feel that it was such a lovely match to go along with the Perfection. This bookcase would be a gorgeous addition to any child’s room. Shoot, I may just keep it for myself! Hehe.
