My plan yesterday was to work in the yard, but it was much too wet. Instead, I repainted this bookcase to use in my living room. This little bookcase has quite a history. For the past few years it has been sitting in the reading corner of my classroom. I found this bookcase in the basement of our house on Cambridge Street. That was in 1982, in other words, thirty-one years ago. It was painted a pale green then. We repainted it bright red to use in my daughter's bedroom. Years later it was painted royal blue to match my son's desk. Now it is bright turquoise. This is to hold all the books that tend to get piled around my favorite chair. It's not going to make it back into my classroom.
