Small Bookshelf Before/After

In an attempt to make the living room more cohesive I am painting all of the beech coloured bookshelves a dark molasses brown. I honestly never liked the lighter colour of the wood but for some reason Aren does. Go figure. The first of the three to be painted is the smallest shelf. I am very pleased with the BEHR paint that I used. It covered so well without streaking. Well worth the money.

The beech shelf full of books.

Empty and ready for painting.

Painted shelf. What a diffference already!

Tada! One shelf down, two to go.

We need bookselves in our house so badly! This colour looks great... we are thinking of putting dark wood in our living room as well... perhaps a dark brown feature wall as well. Looks good.
