Well! I think this is the right place, but not sure.

Anyways, I found this 10 Dollar Little Bookshelf at Goodwill and I thought it be perfect for now for my Videos that was forming in front of the TV and frustating my Dad!

This is what it looked like:

The side view and my little previous baby Tucker decided that he had to check out the Box in the grass. He was actually trying to lick it too lol!

Now, this is how it looks like painted. I used Burdaney[sp?] Color then used a Clear protective paint I got from Wal-Mart for 2.77 as to coat it. I wanted it to fit our room and I'm glad my Mom liked it.

Final Project!

Thank you for looking! The TV Area looks much better now! I'm actually proud on my repainting of it.

Nice painting job!  I love the color.  Just a random tip - you may be able to fit more movies/fit them more uniformly if you put them horizontally.  I'm not sure if that will work... but maybe try it out!  Have fun organizing Smiley

That came out great and you can't beat the $10 price tag.  That must have been some pile of movies in front of the T.V.  Smiley

LMAO! Thanks! Oh. We got more. We need is a bigger one, but Parents are being a bit lazy on buying a cabinet for them and my dad was throwing a fit that he can't get the DVD player to work because the DVDs are in the way lol!!

Oh. We got a whole lot more. On the Top of the Bookshelf, those are the Blu-ray Movies.

It isn't and I'm glad it turned out pretty good. This is the first time I repainted something for my living room lol!  If I find another one, I'm getting it and put it on the other side of the TV for the rest of our movies. The rest of it are sitting in a little DVD spinner which is hidden behind the Sofa for now lol. 

When Movies goes on sell at Big Lots, we buy bunches lol!

Also, Thanks again, everyone! Smiley

Wow crazy, I have that EXACT same bookcase! I've had mine for years and years, and I've painted it like 5 different colors over the years. Just got done painting it a nice yellow to match my living room lol. It's a great bookcase, I like to use mine in those narrow spaces behind doors in places I've lived cause it's the only thing that will fit behind oftentimes. Love the magenta!
