Bookcase Makeover ~ BEFORE and AFTER

Recently, I moved into a new booth at the antique mall.

It's so cute! I remember when the former dealers were
hanging up the doors on the cool!
Mine now! LOL!
 I put some repainted furniture pieces in it, which had sold 
right away resulting in stuff on the floor...
I had a back-up bookcase that I got from my
friend via a furniture swap...but, this brown
and orange didn't quite go with the shabby-ish vibe of the booth.

My friend's booth was very retro 1970's Brady Bunch kitchen style
that was filled with vintage Tupperware and Pyrex.
I was going to paint it shabby white right in my booth, instead of dragging it home...
{DH wouldn't be very thrilled with more furniture piles in the garage anyways!}
So, I thought I would cover up the orange with PAPER!!!

I guess I thought gluing paper would take 
LESS time than painting the whole thing...

It took OVER 3 hours to glue paper {ephemera}
to this piece of furniture...
I also added German Dresden Trim to the edge.
I like it!

I didn't bring enough paper, 
so I started using paper that I sell in my booth...LOL!
I'm glad I wore latex gloves or I would had been peeling
inked glue off my hands for the rest of the day...


It looks so much better and blends in nicer 
with the booth...♥
