Deployment Project #94 - Painted Shelves

Deployment Project #94
Painted Shelves

So, over the weekend I got a call from my hubby, and it turns out he is coming home a few days earlier than I thought.

Of course, my first thought was "HIP!HIP! HOORAY!" After 14 months of deployment, this nightmare is almost over.

But, then my next thought was, "Oh my gosh! I haven't finished up my deployment projects!!"

So, now the pressure if ON to get my projects done!

Here we are with number 94...

Here is what my bookshelf looked like yesterday....

It wasn't ugly, but I wanted to lighten it up a bit.

I used leftover paint I had from painting an old dresser (read about that HERE) so this project was absolutely FREE!!!

I love the lighter background. It makes the things on the shelf POP out!

I love it and it is so similar to your wall it makes it almost look built in. Can you show a picture of your matle decorations please :) I love getting seasonal ideas. Can't wait to see that you posted that hubby is home
