  5. I can't believe that's your before, because it looks pretty. Your dark painted built-ins look great too. I would love to do the different pink shades in my daughter's room. And of course I love all the other fabulous shelves as well.

  6. Hey, Jennifer! I was just thinking about this today! I saw the cutest old white cabinet with a center glass door. The inside was painting a bright turquoise. Such an unexpected pop of color you could just see a peak of. Loved seeing all these great ideas!
