Inspired Bookshelf

I told you when I posted the before and after pictures of my bookshelf that I wasn't quite done with it. Now I am. My inspiration came from one of my favorite websites thrifty decor chick. She has such an awesome site, you really should check her out. Anyway here is my version. What do you think?

more painting.

Bought this dresser at a garage sale. I think I paid $30 for it. We have been using it in the boys room, but I think it may be more at home in MY room!

This dresser was given to us by an Aunt and Uncle of Hubby's. This before pic is actually courtesy of my SIL because she was given an identical dresser and I forgot to do a before pic. Thanks H!

An old bookshelf that I would gladly have parted with now looks like it was made to match. You probably can't tell from the pic but in the before there is a ridge at the top that I didn't like so I filled it in with putty. I am actually not done with this bookshelf, I have one more project that I will show you when it is done.
