Winner! A Book Cabinet to Remember

By Alisha from Alameda, CA

Winning Category

After months of searching for the perfect book cabinet and not finding anything I loved, I finally decided to order a custom unfinished piece. Fenton MacLaren's in Berkeley, CA made this alder bookcase for me and I was beyond excited to finish it! I used a combination of Seagull Gray and Persian Blue to create a beautiful color to match my living room. I then used Champagne Pearl mixed with Clear Base Glaze Effects to add a bit of shimmer. The whole piece was topped with High Performance Top Coat in Flat. The inner back wall was covered with an adorable arrow patterned removable wallpaper from Sweet Pea Wall Design. Knobs are from Anthropologie. I think I hit the bullseye with this one!!
