Over the weekend we had 2 wonderful baby showers and got TONS of books! However, we didn't have a bookcase for the nursery to put them on. So I got on Craigslist for the first time ever and searched for a cheap but cute bookcase and found one! We went on Sunday to look at it and bought it right then and there for 30 bucks! I didn't like the color of the wood so we immediately went to Home Depot and got some primer and black paint. Since all of the other furniture in the room is going to be white, again, I wanted to add some color so we chose black to match the mirror. I thought if we painted it white there would be way too much white in the room with the furniture and trimming.
