September 24, 2010MCM Home Improvement: Should I Paint This Bookcase?
By Sablemable aka Jan
I have this built-in bookcase in my living room and I’m wondering if I should paint the inside walls of it, i.e., yellow walls/sides, white shelves.
I plan on keeping the living room walls white; my carpeting is a mocha brown shade. When I find my perfect furniture, it will be in a mathcing mocha brown. Then I plan to use bright accent colors such as mint green, coral pink, lemon yellow, et al.
More info: the bookcase is the divider to the front door foyer and living room. You can see the carpet color, along with the baseboards in the original finish. The trim/baseboards are going to be refinished and I’m leaning towards the blonde wood look.
Any recommendations, readers?
