My husband's parents gave us these bookshelves and we almost donated them.now I am so glad we didn't! A few coats of white paint and styling with items we already had made a big impact in the most awkward corner of our master bedroom.
Place painted foam board in the back of the bookcase, giving the look of a painted bookshelf w/out the commitment. Love this idea for a small book shelf next to couch. Good way to use yellow without committing to it in a big space.
