Bright Red Built In Bookshelf


I am so excited about the bright red built in bookshelf we recently refinished in our dining room. All we needed was a pint of Valspar “Real Red” and an hour of time (plus a great set of hardcover classic books my husband inherited from his grandparents and a few select nick nacks).

Besides the classic books and the very bright red paint in this bright red built in bookshelf, my favorite part of this display¬†is the nick nacks. I found these adorable teal “Hear No Evil. Speak No Evil. See No Evil” Glass Owls for just $6 a piece at Marshall’s in Boston MA. And I inherited the cute pewter fishy mail holder from my Grandpa Marty.

I just love how the bright red serves as a perfect backdrop for items my husband and I each inherited from family (minus the crazy, yet so fun owls). And the high gloss finish keeps it fun and functional!
