Remember me? I know it's been awhile since I blogged. I hope you're all having a great summer. Our family recently got back from Martha's Vineyard, where we have family roots. We love to visit this beautiful island. While I was there one of my sisters and I stopped in at a yard sale and found two matching bookshelves. One for her and one for me! I painted hers a mint (using Shermin Williams Mint Condition) and I brought mine back to Maryland with me
stuffing it in the car. My sister's newly painted bookshelf will go in her children's room in their new home.
Here's the BEFORE:
My favorite part of the yard sale was talking to the owners. They are both writers and world travelers. The wife is a Pulitzer prize winning author. I was so excited that I read her book too (Geraldine Brooks, Year of Wonders). It's always worth a shot going to a yard sale. You never know what kind of treasure you might find.
I love the beading up top and the lines of this bookshelf. I can't wait to paint mine now too.
