We all know that painting the backs of bookcases are all the rage. It’s a great way to add a pop of color without going too crazy. I searched all over the classifieds, but couldn’t find anything that would suit the vision I was having for the nursery.
Two skinny IKEA Billys would do the job just fine though! AND painting the back would be easier this way, since I could paint it all in one sweep, instead of taping off, and cutting in. Ick.
Using the boxes the bookcases came in was a great way to not get paint everywhere, if you ever plan on doing this project.
A rich deep purple was my color of choice for this project.
The plan was one on either side of the crib.
However, with the flood of light in this room, everything is either extremely over-exposed, or wildly under-exposed. I’m still working on my photog skillz, so don’t judge me for sucking at room pictures! The color balance isn’t quite right, but this is the correct shade of purple, pulled straight from Sherwin-Williams’ site. “Fully Purple” is her name… even though it almost looks a bit navy in my pictures. I promise, IRL it’s a gorgeous purple.
These two are wondering when they get to use the fancy new dog bed/crate… They are going to be so disappointed.
