I am all about free furniture so when my grandmother told me she had an old bookcase she was getting rid of I knew I could find a use for it. The dresser I refinished in Callie’s room is very deep so I have toyed with the idea of adding a bookcase on top of it for additional storage. I LOVE me some storage and in the kid’s tiny rooms it’s essential to maximize the vertical space. The last bookcase I refinished was too wide for the dresser but my grandma’s old bookcase was a perfect fit and thus the DIY began.
I painted the wallpaper panels pink to match Callie’s dresser and give it some girly flair. In this photo you can see the trim that was added to the bottom. I needed to eliminate the arch so that the bookcase and dresser appear to be one piece rather than two.
