Nothing like finding a nice piece of solid wood furniture.
Scored a nice piece at our local human society thrift store for $20.00.
I have been wanting to replace these cheapo book shelves in Jack’s room for sometime now.
I was so happy to find this book shelf…and I could not believe the price.
Instead of painting it, I just used a stain. The wood is too nice to cover up.
Of course a little stenciling had to be done.
|It looks so nice and neat now in his room, if only for the photo shot LOL!|
Now if only Jack would pick up a book and read a few this summer.
(He will, because I make him)
That was my latest and greatest.
NEWBIE party going on
looks great,, makes such a different look,

It looks great! And I love the stenciling.

Very nice find!! 20 bucks I would call that a steal! Looks great and the stain is a great shade! I love it!
Wow, that is a great deal for $20!!
I really like the stenciling on the side. Looks great! I love to find a bargain.
Have a good week. 🙂
It looks good! It really fits in with the room too. Great job!
This it very nice and looks good in his room much better than the other one….
What a great deal, Debbie. I like it stained, it really is pretty wood. You did a wonderful job on the stenciling!

Love it Debbie! The stenciling makes the piece perfect!
Debbie, what a great find you got there. And it looks great in Jack's room. As for the boys not reading, I can't get mine to read either.
Much better, and a great deal.

I too think the stencil took it from a nice piece to a great piece. Looks good.
The Garden Bell
Soooooo, much better. Great find. Glad you just stenciled and stained. Perfect for that room. Off to boop around, three days gone and I feel a world behind.
It's perfect for your son's room! A great size and something that will be sturdy…for boys! ♥
Jennifer @ Rustic Renditions
Great find! I love that you have a humane society thrift store… wonder if there's one in my neck of the woods? I'll have to look into that!
The Polka Dot Closet
Debbie, welcome back! Good price on the wood and crafty stenciling…..OK where are the vacation picks? We want to hear about Kims fabulous house!
Debbie..this is one great lookin' bookcase,I know that you can find the most wonderful items on the cheap!
Hey makin' Jack read will be one of the sweet wonderful mom things! You are awesome!!
Great score. I've been looking for something like that for my son's room. Yours came out awesome.
Cute bookshelf! Love the stenciling on the side- Find him books about sports heros his age or something that he would love to know more about. My son, that never read, has discovered that he loves non-fiction. Try Into The Wild…I don't think the story is too old for him..it's about a kid that took off into the wilderness and the follow up looking for him. It is also a movie, I believe…but the book is better. xo Diana
Really great find! Looks great in your son's room and love the stenciling, simple and very nice.

Definitely a great find!!! Looks so much better than the other bookshelves!
What a GREAT idea. I love how it turned out! 🙂
Have a great week!
So much better than plastic and will handle a lot of books. I am glad he reads.
Cool bookshelf. Love your stenciling. I think you do such a great job of decorating the kids rooms. Come one up and help me with my son's room. It's one of my summer projects and I haven't even picked out a wall color yet.

It looks great stained. At first I thought, no you need to paint it. But when I saw it in the pic in your sons room, it looked perfect. Good deal!
Great find Debbie and it looks perfect! Have a great day!
At The Picket Fence
I love it Debbie! It seems to be so rare to find solid wood pieces these days that you definitel need to snatch them up when you see them. I think the lettering on it is fantastic and you inspired me to try and do something like this on my son's dresser! 🙂
Debbie I love how you left the wood to shine through!! Great project. What a deal. It looks great in the room!
Very nice! I like it stained and your stenciled words!
Yea for lego boys! all four of mine were lego-boys! love the shelving too
The Tame Lion
Wonderful! Absolutely wonderful!
It looks fantastic in that room! A great score!! You did good!!
Debbie, what a great find! I love the stenciling you added and it looks great in his room.
Have a wonderful day,
Good for you and good for him. Glad you make him read! He'll appreciate someday.
That was an excellent score for $20.00! I find you can never have too many bookshelves like this. I love how you added the stencil.
this is a good 20 bucks investment! for sure doesn't look a cheap piece of furniture! love it!
what a great piece of furniture you are so right so very versatile
Love the new bookcase. Been trying to think of something for my granddaughter.
I love this Debbie!! I like the color too and the stencil looks perfect.

Looks great! The new shelves fit his room so much better. Great find! Thanks for sharing.
I love how you stained the wood book shelf instead of painting it. The stencil really does make it special.
What a great find, his room looks really good….Im looking forward to op shopping again when I can wander around without needing a loo every 5 seconds!
This is really cute, a great price and I love what you stenciled on it. I just finished stenciling a table and am still is shell-shock over it. :))
