A friend is moving into a new home and decided she didn't need or want a
few things. Knowing that I'm a junk collector thrifty kinda girl she passed it
along to me!  



Well here's what I did with this piece.....

  17. Hello Julie! Thanks for stopping by. No trick at all, I simply sanded it down, took the back off and prime both pieces with Kilz. I used Valspar's paint. The stencil came from Hobby Lobby. It's reusable and pretty easy to use. To keep it from sliding I used a permanent spray adhesive, letting it get tacky for about 5 mins before attaching it to the back board. Hope that helps, I'd love to see your piece once it done!

  19. Love this! I found you through Better After.

    I am gonna need some more info on the stencil pattern. I am in the market for some open bookcases and a way to decorate them.

  20. Hello Irene, Sorry I'm so late with this. If I'm not mistaken I bought that particular stencil at Hobby Lobby.

  21. I think I have two of these EXACT bookcases that I desperately want to redo. (Ours were free when the in-laws moved cross country) Mine are particle board with the wood looking laminate. Is that what yours were? Did the KILZ adhere? I wasn't sure paint would stay on the laminate.
