Back in December I bought this pine bookcase on Marktplaats (Dutch Craigslist) for Bo’s study. I spent a little while searching as I never want to spend too much money on something that I’m going to makeover and I don’t want to do a cross-country. I was lucky for €50 and a 30 km drive.
Once at home I sanded the bookcase, give it an allover white prime and two fresh coats of Farrow & Ball All White. Now that I’m using water based paints I can paint a bookcase like this in a day, I love it!
After the coats of paint I changed the pine knobs with a mitch match of fun porcelain painted knobs .
I’ve bought these at ‘Zoals Vroeger’. It’s a great simple webshop for buying knobs like these. I’m sure if you mail the owners (and tell them you’ve found their shop through my blog) they’ll answer and help you in English.
I used knobs 32, 99, 113 and 155 for my bookcase.
Thank you so much for the positive comments on a very big decision I’ve made. It’s not that I just woke up one day and thought to myself; “lets get rid of that blog”, it took months. Just see it that I will have to fill this space so that I will be here very often.
