Some have said I’m not crafty. I roll my eyes at them. I am too. I’m creative and I like to try my hands at new projects. I just might not always follow the directions and goof up a time or two. That’s okay.  Which is when I wanted to give an old bookcase a makeover; I kept my little project quiet. I didn’t want my husband or children doubting me or instructing me on how to sand this or do that. I wanted to do it on my own with no help.

This meant late night sanding and painting but that’s okay, it was me time and I was very excited to makeover this ugly dark brown bookcase that was collecting dust, toys and junk.
