Before & After....Bookcase

This piece was a great Craigslist find {Campaign Bookcase}.  I knew just the spot I wanted to put it....my office.  I can't seem to find enough storage space in there and what a great way to add a little touch of elegance to the space.  The walls in there are a cool shade of blueish/grey, so I went with a soft grey for the paint color.   
After painting it a couple of coats of grey semi-gloss paint I applied a remnant of Trina Turk fabric to the back of the bookcase and Ta Da! Done!!

I'll be taking a trip to the office supply store this week to pick up a few storage containers.  Maybe something like this.....
 Or maybe something more swanky like these from Reaney Designs boxes....HA!
I think this project turned out pretty good and came in under budge at $45 for the bookcase, fabric and paint. 
On to the next project.....
