A Whimsical Bubble Gum Pink Bookshelf and Dresser

Happy Spring Everyone! Today I am happy to say that Spring is finally here after a week of cold rain and dreary days. The sun is out and it is in the low 60’s. Woohoo! I hope this keeps up!

I love upcycling furniture and today I want to share a couple of pieces I completed a few months back. When I had my shop space last summer we needed some more display pieces and I came across this pitiful looking bookshelf. Although it was pretty droopy looking, it was a solid piece. It just needed some TLC.

I decided to paint it a cute bubble gum pink and added a whimsical floral fabric to the back for some added interest.

I think this Whimsical Bubble Gum Pink Bookshelf turned out great. I almost wish I had a place in my own home for it.  I can envision it in a brightly colored beach house here on the Crystal Coast or perhaps in a little girl’s room!Bubble Gum Pink Upcycled Bookshelf

Oh, and I didn’t stop there. I loved the pink and wanted to do more with it. I bought a small dresser with the intention of cutting it down to nightstand height for my master bedroom but changed my mind. I wish I had a before picture to show you but I DON’T! UGH! The small dresser was painted white and a bit beaten up. I painted it the same Bubble Gum Pink and then got a little creative.Bubble Gum Pink Dresser

I did some fun stenciling on the front and added some cute drawer pulls.

The bottom of the dresser was damaged on the sides so I disguised it with a piece of cute aqua blue contact paper I cut in a scalloped pattern.

With a few lime green accessories placed on it, this Whimsical Bubble Gum Pink Bookshelf and Dresser could really liven up a room!

Waste Not Want Not: I wrapped a lampshade with some leftover fabric from the bookshelf, painted the base of a small ceramic lamp aqua blue and created a matching Aqua Blue Table Lamp! Too cute!

I love working with bright colors. Adding colors to an ordinary room with bright accessories and painted furniture can make the space come alive. I am sure these pieces will find a new home soon enough and I hope they bring a smile to a face or two. I had a ball redesigning this whimsical collection.

Has Spring visited you in your neck of the woods yet? If not I hope these brightly colored upcycled finds brought a little sunshine into your day.

Thanks so much for visiting!

    where did you find the aqua quatrefoil contact paper? Been searching for the exact paper – my sister-in-law found some at TJMaxx, but I’ve had no such luck.

    Thanks
