do you have a place or item in your home that makes you happy every time you see it? i have a few.
one of them is this little bookshelf. it was originally a shelf made to hold hymn books at an lds church. but, luckily for me, someone dropped it and smashed the corner of it. my dad who worked for the church at the time, took it home and plastered the corner and gave it to me, being a newly wed at the time, he knew any piece of furniture would be appreciated and used.
i painted it black first. i was a beginner in the whole painting world i just went and picked up some paint. 2 years later, when i decided to paint brown over the black, i learned that the black paint was oil based. and still being a beginner in the painting world, didn't think it would cause too much problem. fast forward 3 years, the bookshelf had brown paint peeling off of it, i chose to ignore it for sometime and put it is howie's room.
