A Fresh Coat of Paint

A couple weeks ago I helped my aunt clean out and paint one of the bedrooms in her house. There's something about hard work and physical labor that is incredibly calming for me. While helping her clear out stuff, I ended up taking some stuff home with me, including a bookshelf. The shelf was old, but sturdy, and since at the time my books were stacked on my bedroom floor, I thought it was perfect. I was not a fan of the baby blue paint job, however. A can of paint and an afternoon later, I had a pretty new home for my (stacks and stacks of) books!

Pretty teal paint

The finished product!

The color is closer to the color in this photo, rather than
the one above, where it looks more blueish.
