I've been getting more and more bold with my color choices. This seems to happen every spring when the weather improves, and I immediately want everything else in my life to become equally bright and warm. It could be construed as projecting my feelings onto my furniture [note to self: stop psychoanalyzing!], but no matter how you look at it, I've ended up with several funky, fun pieces of furniture.
Enter my newly painted bookcase! It's another skinny-mini, but it's solid wood and has nice, curved ends [a feature I'm particularly partial to]. Anytime something has a curve in it as opposed to a sharp edge, I immediately think 'kid-friendly', which may have been another reason why I went with a youthful color.
I styled the shelves with equally bright, adorable objects [the Abe Lincoln piggy bank head is just the best. thing. ever.].
I see these shelves chock-full of books, but it can also work as a storage space for toys [doesn't everyone have a massive collection of teddy bears? Is that just me? Oh...] or a cute spot for potted plants and terrariums. I love the greenery up against the peachy-orange color. The bookcase seems brighter [or more specifically, orange-er] in the photos than it is in person, despite my vague attempts at rectifying this via Photoshop. But in either light, it's pretty darn cute.
