My living room was looking winter dark and dreary so I decided to lighten up all my decor,
starting with this bookcase painting in my favorite blues, reds, golds and greens.
I found a big blank thrift store canvas for the win. Three dollars!!
I Mod Podged old dictionary pages over the whole thing.
I drafted in the design and started the base book paintings.
I crackle painted several books on each shelf with Elmer's glue and craft paint.
It's an easy DIY and looks awesome!
I blogged about it here...
Then comes lots of details and dry brushing and even some gel markers.
And I added one of my garden orbs since they are kind of my "thing."
I really like the new, lighter, colorful way my livingroom is headed.
I am sure there are more projects in store.
Thanks for stopping by!
