|Bookcases with salmon trim|
|trim repainted dark mohagony red|
I painted the trim a dark red/brown (similar in color to my mahogany dining room furniture) and presto! the bookcases now tie in beautifully with my the rest of my furniture.

As for the thrift-shop bookcases - I placed them against my wall and loaded them up with our books, plants, baskets, and my daughter's rock collection (and if you look closely, you'll see a favorite basket which will be appearing soon in another post). I love them! They look so nice and inspire me to do more redecorating upgrades to my home.
