Shelf do-up...

I have been looking at bookcase do ups on Pinterest...
 which if you didn't already know is my other 'happy place' !
There are so many clever ideas...
Wallpaper on the shelf backboards...
Paint...
fabric mod podged on...
The list goes on.


I have always disliked my bookcase.
Ornaments just don't display well, because the wood is so dark.
The 'Sitting Room' where the shelf resides has a lot of red and white in it
 and it's pretty bright, 
so I decided to simply paint the backboards of the shelf white.



And what a difference it has made!


 My stuff stands out!
(I am wondering why it took me so long to do this!)


It has brightened up the wall...


And the best thing is...
 my cute flying pig has wings for all to see.
