Decorated Bookshelf

A while ago, I shared how I refinished an old, worn bookcase,  I even showed the finished bookshelf, but I realized I haven’t shared pictures of it in the space, completely decorated.  So, here it is.

The top before refinishing was shabby, and not very chic.

The sanding, staining and polyurethane fixed that problem.

It took a lot of time, but it was definitely worth the effort to revamp this passed down bookshelf.  I really love how it looks in the room, too.

P.S.  If you like the Alphabet Tree painting in the photos above, you can get a printed version for yourself.

    1. Hi Felicity,

      Dr. Seuss books are necessary classics! I think I enjoy them more than the boys do. 🙂 Those are tiny oragami cranes. I’ll share more about that sometime soon. It’s my crazyness…


  1. I was also about to ask you about that gorgeous owl! I love it! Glad to know other people share my love for all things fowl 🙂

    1. Hi TZ and Christie,

      Thanks so much for your sweet comments! I actually painted the alphabet print, but I do sell 8 by 10 inch prints and you can custommize them by adding initials to the branches. If you are interested in purchasing one, please e mail me at


  2. Thanks Amanda! I’m planning an owl themed 1st birthday for my daughter, so I’ve been on the lookout for ideas for decorations. Urban Outfitters has tons of cute owl stuff! I’ll be heading over there soon! 🙂
