It is freezing cold outside and so we are hold up in doors for what seems like the rest of our lives. To make the best of these plunging temperatures, I have been rethinking ways to liven up my house so it's a bit more bearable this time of year.
Several months ago, I bought this gorgeous bookcase from a classified ad, painted it black to match my decor, and filled it with treasures. The carved wood at the top is so unique, but I felt like it kind of got lost. Alas, an idea, lets add lights underneath and see what that does. And so began another project. Once I got the lights, it only took 20 minutes to put together. Believe me, if I can do it, anyone can do it.
After drilling a small hole in the back of each column, and using a few screws to fasten the light to the underside of the bookcase..........
The change was remarkable and exactly what I was looking for. That was a $12 makeover and now when I look at it, I am so happy to see my "stuff" in lights. I know what you're thinking...............Isn't she crafty!
