We’re talking a serious crush on this beautiful vintage bookcase! My client had to pry it from my fingertips! We were at an auction together and she won the bid on this piece, already knowing how she wanted me to paint it for her. It was truly a pleasure until it was time to be delivered to her shop at Scottsdale Marketplace. Oh my goodness, if I would have bid on this piece I’m afraid it would have been staying home with me!
Besides the obvious in the gorgeous design of this piece, I LOVE the distressed white finish.
So here’s the before photo and yes…the glass was MIA.
We decided no glass was just fine! My client wanted it to be completely rustic anyway, so decided not to replace the missing glass.
The interior just need a good cleaning and a quick top coat of Dark Walnut Stain to freshen it up.
Stunning details everywhere you look! I used two coats of CeCe Caldwell’s Vintage White and then took a power sander to the entire exterior to achieve this look.
I can imagine quilts piled high on the shelves or a display of pretty white Ironstone pitchers. What would use it for?
So if you are having that feeling of “I just can’t live without this”, go visit The W House inside Scottsdale Marketplace. You will find this beauty there just waiting for you to take it home!
