Charming Painted Bookcase Tutorial

Painted and Stenciled Bookcase

Last month I worked on a fun project for DecoArt: a charming painted bookcase, to demonstrate how versatile and fun DecoArt’s Chalky Finish paint line is.

I painted this bookcase based on a pair of socks for inspiration.


Yes! My friend Laura gave me an adorable pair of MacKenzie-Childs socks as a gift when I visited her in Colorado! I’ve always loved the whimsical designs of MacKenzie-Childs, so having their designs on comfy socks is simply awesome!

So awesome that I designed a painted bookcase around them! Here’s what I shared on my Instagram feed back in June:
