paint the inside of a bookcase. this is great for adding a pop of color to a room without painting the walls. - Liz for your road side finds. Paint to look like good pieces of furniture. Could paint inside other beautiful colors
Wrap a piece of cardboard in fabric and put at back of bookcase instead of painting or wallpaper. You can change as often as you wanted.love this idea sooo much Lets use leftover fabric in the blue bookcase
cool use of old drawers: re-use a dresser.using just the drawers This could be interesting because then you could use the actual dresser without the drawer as shelves to. So one dresser = two sets of shelves.
If you're new to painting, I would HIGHLY recommend visiting All Things Thrifty and read her post Painting Furniture Hmmm. Love the black top with the black accents and white. It would tie in the black bed frame.
