Abbey from Painted Home Goods took a boring, dingy bookcase and turned it into an adorable storage space with Jitterbug!

I was given this little bookcase by a friend who simply didn’t need it anymore. It was solid wood and had a charming Art Deco style curve but had been painted many, many times over the years and was sort of dingy.

Country Chic Paint’s color Jitterbug (now part of the Standard Line!!) is such a fantastic era-crossing color that works so well with many different styles. Two coats of Jitterbug instantly beautified this dingy bookcase! For added interest I used a vintage looking floral gift wrap in the back of the shelves.

Abbey {Painted Home Goods}

As a mom to twin boys, I am always busy. Twice the fun, twice the work! My Twin Tornadoes and salvaging neglected furniture are my passions. If a twin mom in a small apartment can fix up and paint furniture, so can you! In today’s throw-away culture and tendency towards cheaply made, mass produced home goods, I seek to provide something different, something unique. Bringing new life to discarded finds is my way of contributing to the responsible thrifting counterculture that has become a growing trend. When shopping with PaintedHomeGoods you can feel good about what you buy. Enjoy!
