When Wendy’s husband suggested a little ‘pole’ action to spice things up, she reluctantly agreed. Not like that, pervs. I’m talking about the pole in this this fireman-themed bookcase! Wendy scored this bookcase for a mere $10 on Craigslist and knew it would be the perfect place for her one-year-old son’s beloved fire-trucks.
So she painted it red, glazed it and added the mod-podged plaque, but it was still missing something. Her husband (who just happens to be a fireman) talked her in to adding the pole, and the whole look came together! It’s simply a wooden dowel primed black and painted a metallic gold. Looks fantastic.
