refurbished bookshelf/desk

Here is the before shot of the bookshelf/desk.  Not bad looking, but not what I wanted.  (Isn't my son a cutie?  He insisted on being in the picture.)  I tried sanding it a little, but it isn't real wood and that wasn't working out so well, and wasn't doing much, so I did two coats of primer instead.

 Then two coats of white paint in a semi gloss and about a yard of Mary Engelbreit fabric and Thrifty Decor Chick's trick  for the back of the shelves!  I think it turned out SO cute!  I wish this was for our home, but sadly, it has somewhere else to live.  Luckily it is already out the door, or I may have changed my mind.  I just love it!
