Banned Books

Banned Books
This makeover is perfect for the person who loves to read, but doesn’t necessarily need anyone seeing what they love to read. Are you a grown man with a secret crush on teenage vampire love stories?   A bodice-ripper reader who also teaches a home preschool?  Maybe you have a growing obsession with celebrity biographies? (raises hand.)  Keep prying eyes out of your bookcase and simply add some doors! No one needs to know! Just put stuff like War and Peace and Wuthering Heights on the open shelves.  I won’t tell.
From Willow, who has nothing to hide and actually uses this as a dining room hutch. Check it out at My Irish Cottage.

    Haha thank God for the Kindle so no one can see what I read! Still love bookcases though 🙂

    Wow, that looks great painted with doors. And I never thought about people looking at my book titles. Running to check now…..

    What a clever idea! I love the fresh coat of paint, really makes it come alive

    That is such a great idea. I actually just mentioned your blog as one of my favorite DIY sources. The wallpapered Ikea table is next on my list.

    It’s so funny that you posted this, because I was just telling mu husband I wanted to get new shelves, a sort of hutch but with a more modern feel – even if the only thing I have to hide is just how many TV series we own on dvd 😉
