Last summer I found this very red bookshelf at a yardsale near my house. Someone was definitely a Patriots fan judging by the color and stickers on the side. It was solid wood which pushed me over the edge to get it. We don't have a lot of room for extra furniture but I knew it was something we could use for storage or in a kid's room at a later point in time. At $2 I didn't feel too guilty either!
Amazingly after just a little sanding and some primer the red covered up really well! I did a finishing coat of shiny white spray paint.
As you can see it holds my card making paper right now! It fits perfectly in our sun room!
