Wythe Blue Painted Shelves

Last night, I pulled off the bajillion books and tackled the backs of my living room shelves.

I do love Wythe Blue. 

It was a quick project, but I still took the opportunity to throw on "The Notebook" and enjoy some quality time with myself and a paintbrush while Mike stayed as far away as possible (he avoids romances and painting at all costs).

 And now you know my secret - I watch all movies and shows with the subtitles on -- when they're not available it drives me bananas. It started when my babies were teeny and I would watch movies with Mike while nursing... and then I realized that being a visual learner, I understood movies so much better when I could read the subtitles too. (especially the movies my husband makes me watch with 250 gun-wielding characters, corporate espionage and surprise endings that I can never keep straight)

It used to make Mike crazy, and now he just knows to put the subtitles on for me. Aww.

I'm going to try to style these babies real quick-like since I have about a billion things to do before my hardwood floors get finished... next week. Gulp.

Living room shelves:
Paint backs
Style shelves
Build cabinet doors for media component cubbies

P.S. Ryan Gosling is my boyfriend.


  1. Hi,

    I am sooo pleased to have found somebody else who has to watch movies/tv series with subtitles on!!!I can not watch anything that hasn't got them now.

  2. so so pretty! i love that color, too. and what, ryan is cheating on me?!?!

  3. So glad you picked that color! It was my fave of all the choices. The shelves look great!

  4. Love it! My bookshelves are painted Wythe Blue, except that I painted the whole thing. I've been thinking that I wanted to paint the outside white like yours and this might give me the inspiration to do it!

  5. Oh I LOVE the blue. I am excited to see how they look after you style them!

  6. Love the blue color you really makes the cabinets stand out and brightens up the room. Can't wait to see the final project!


  7. OMG I love Ryan too. My husband said he's the only man he'd fight me for. lol! Love the shelf too btw. ;)

  8. hi- i'm new to reading but you're quickly becoming a fav! now even more so b/c i thought i was the ONLY person who watches all movies AND tv with the captions on all the time. how do people know what's going on w/out the captions??! love your blog :)

  9. OMG! I always watch movies with the subtitles! I thought I was the only one in the world who did this...that is until I got my husband hooked on them too! LOL! Love the blue you chose for the shelves.

  10. My husband and I watch everything with subtitles too... I am glad to see there are others out there!

  11. I love and adore all of you subtitle readers out there... y'all made my week with these comments! My husband didn't like it at the beginning either, but now he (secretly and to his chagrin) misses them when they're gone. mwahaha.


I ♥ comments. Me + you = BFFs 4VR.
