Remember that old french door I rescued from the city dump when I brought it home and made it pretty again? I painted the glass with transparent glass paint I made using clear Elmer’s glue and acrylic paints. Acrylics work well but food coloring works better. I added lights to the back so the door had pretty lights shinning through the painted windows.
Well, I apparently wasn’t finished with that door it would turn out. I had my husband add some shelves from some brackets I picked up at the 99cent store. Then I bought a damaged piece of wood from the hardware store in the discount section that was less then $1. My husband cut the wood into four small shelves. We were surprised there was enough wood to do this with. After they were cut I painted the shelves white.
Now I have a French door bookshelf.
So easy and it looks really pretty when the lights are turned on behind the glass door. I am using LED Christmas lights stapled to the back of the door for light. I bought the lights at 75% off too, so the whole bookshelf cost me less then $10 to make. Can’t find bookshelves that cheap anymore. Happy re-purposing everyone.
