My Office Bookshelf...(Via Made By Girl)

One of the things I worked on this past weekend was my office bookshelf.  My husband suggested we paint the back of the bookshelf in 'black beauty' by Benjamin Moore... I agreed & TA DAAA!! He was tired of all the white in the home office & I guess I was too.... To see what the shelves looked like BEFORE, go here.

I've also been working on some paintings, which I'll be REVEALING soon.... for sale!  


Painting can be HAZARDOUS to pretty hands, I need a MANICURE bad!


How cute is my BIBLE wrapped in Python??

  1. It's so modern and stylish... I love little detail you have on this shelf: the blue dragon/dog, the abstract painting, and the coral reef...
