Is it just me or do bookshelves also make you feel studious? Whether or not they are filled with actual books (or pretty bowls and trinkets), a nicely styled bookshelf unquestionably adds a lot to a room. But you know what adds even more to a room? A pop of color, of course. Painting the inside of bookshelves - an inky blue, mossy green or even a bright peach - it can beautifully transform a room! Considering a quart of paint costs about $10 - in my opinion, it would be $10 well spent. I'm storing this away on my "future projects" list. One day.
