painted bookshelves...

recently, i painted the backs of our bookshelves the same dark, bluish grey that i painted the walls in our bedroom. i'd been thinking about it for a while, and always intended to paint the backs of them, so i thought it was time. i couldn't decide if i liked it at first, but now i have decided i definitely do. the color is similar to the color in the curtains, and it almost makes the backs of the shelves appear deeper.

i also like how it makes all of my little decorative items stand out!

i painted the trim that was peeking up from the bottom before...it blends much better now. i should probably paint the lightswitch that is inside the shelves, too, huh?

  1. I love the blue backs to the bookshelves, but I wouldn't paint the light switch. Unless you have spray paint, it is hard to get it smooth and professional looking. Plus, it doesn't stand out very much.

  4. To paint the lightswitch, or not to paint the lightswitch? That is the question. I say paint it. Covering it makes it a pain to access.

  6. Just a thought, but what if you painted that whole wall dark blue? Then the shelves and knick-knacks would be all KAPOW! AND, your TV would disappear like those posts all over the internet where they put black wallpaper behind the tv.

    Kinda like this, though I've seen cuter examples.

  7. molly - oooo, that might be a good idea.....i'm going to have to think on it. one of my hestitations in painting the backs dark was that i was worried it'd make the TV stand out more...the only problem is that there is no way i'm takin' that thing down to paint...so i'd have to work around it, which could get gross.....hmmmmmmmmmmm..........

  10. To coloring your lightswitch, or even to not coloring your lightswitch? That's the query. We state coloring it. Spanning it makes it the soreness to access.
