A recent craft show taught me that I need step up my jewelry display means. In this project, I took an old bookcase I picked up at a garage sale for $5 and some pegboard I nabbed from someone’s trash, combining them to make a display case. All it took was a little spray paint, and my trusty jigsaw ($4 garage sale find) – Yay power tools! Follow along and watch it unfold.
You guys remember this post, where I revamped a bookcase? Here are the before and after…
Not that I didn’t love the funky, groovy, flower shelf look, but it really kinda stood out amongst my decor. I had been wanting to do something with it for awhile. It occurred to me that the piece of peg board I harvested from someone’s curbside trash would make the perfect backing for this case, once I painted it, of course.
I traced the bookcase backing outline onto the pegboard, then cut it with my jigsaw! I cut on the inside of the lines, to ensure my peg board would not stick out from the back of the case.
Next, I removed the plywood backing from the book case. After spray painting the book case and pegboard (black and “periwinkle”, respectively) with Krylon Fusion and allowing that to dry, I nailed the pegboard in place. I sealed with 2 coats of Minwax Polycrylic and that is it. Who says you can’t revamp a revamp!
