Transformed Treasures Tuesday no 26

It’s that time, time to check out my Transformed Treasures Tuesday no 26.  It’s a bookcase that I thought was red when I bought it, not that I wanted a red bookcase.  As I knew it would get a revamp.  After I paid it for it the workers at Goodwill pulled it out to the car for me.  As they are bringing it out I’m all like no no I want the red bookcase their all like yeah this is it.  Take a look at the crazy before pictures.


Transformed Treasures Tuesday no 26

bookcase the after

I’m pretty darn happy with my handy work and how this piece turned out.  It’s going in my black bedroom.  And it really makes a statement in there don’t you think.  Yes the doors below are missing knobs I’m on the hunt for some.  But was ready to show you all this piece I already love.

If you follow me on instagram then you saw this picture yesterday.

So here are some of the steps I took to transform this beauty in the ruff.  First I removed the backboard.

To which I added my favorite wallpaper.  Sometime you have to join pieces together and a little clear tape helped me puzzle these pieces.  The wallpaper came with a glue that you just activate with warm water.


Two quick coats of white for the outside & my favorite {kinda Tiffany} blue for the inside of doors and closed of shelf.  And this baby was ready to rock and roll don’t you agree?

Stay tunned…xoxo Arod
