I purchased this small bookshelf a few months ago at a local thrift shop for $4. The ends were wood but shelves were veneered particleboard.
When my daughter needed a storage piece above the toilet in her apartment, I set out to restyle this piece. First the bottoms each side were sawed off to make the shelf appear more like a wall shelf instead of a floor shelf.
Next I painted the shelf with Annie Sloan Chalk Paint in French Linen. I distressed the shelf and stenciled on a "doily" on two of the shelves using ivory craft paint and a 10" x 10" Decoart stencil called Mandala. The stencil was a little to wide but still worked out very well.
All of my photos in this post were taken with either my iphone or my daughter's so the photos are not the best, and her bathroom has no windows. I found these little baskets at Target to keep the shelves organized. We hung the shelf with screws through the top back board.
Decorative jars also keep the shelves neat.
I found the baskets in the local Target store, (not online) and I think they were about $9 each.
I liked the end result and so did my daughter!
