Bookshelf in Orange

On Friday, I visited an old farmstead in search of a replacement mirror for an old vanity and ended up coming home with the pickup full of "treasures"...
and one of them found its home in Casey's room. 

I recently showed pictures from the room makeover that we did for 
our son Casey.  We had used a unique old bookshelf next to his bed...
it worked, but I was searching for a better one:)  

This is the original one.  

I bought this for $5.  
Ugly. Dirty. Gross. 

Soap. Water. Bleach. Paint.  


The entire piece is painted Barcelona Orange, distressed and waxed.  I used scrapbook papers and Modge Podge on the back panel to add interest.  

Now Casey has the perfect spot for his "treasures."
