dating a virgo man forum - Updating old bookcase

I used one of those cheap chip brushes to apply the stain and allowed it to dry without wiping any of the stain off. Stain used: Rustoleum Ultimate Wood Stain in Weathered Gray.

This closeup shows the weathered looking finish that was created by brushing the stain on top of the wood and allowing it to dry without wiping it off.

We have a variety of solutions that can go under shelves or on top of your bookcases.

Their most redeeming quality is that the shelves are solid wood, so they don’t sag under the weight of a lot of books.

Here they are today, after giving them a couple of coats of primer paint (to completely cover the red’ish stain) and brushing on gray stain.

If you have a bookcase with lots of different compartments, give it some pizzazz by covering the back panels of each compartment in a different pattern. After doing this post, the bookcases in my office are screaming for attention.

I see a fun new project being added to the to-do list for my office makeover!

Do you have any ideas for updating bookcase back panels that you’d like to share?

This is such a popular look in home decor right now and I just love the way it looks!

No nails were used in this part of building the door.

After the glue had dried, the door was cut to the length that we wanted and other boards were cut down to be used to frame out the top, sides and for a middle brace.

I touched the end up with a black magic marker and now you’d never know that it had been cut.

Pookie built the barn door out of pre-painted rustic lumber sold at Home Depot. Each piece of lumber was 8′ long and had a rabbited edge on each side.

Those boards were attached with wood glue and wood screws.
