i love paint behind a bookcase!i actually just painted the back of one of my kitchen cupboard black ... then i display all of my white serving pieces in front. it's beautiful if i have to say so myself!
ooo. I like that. is your kitchen primarily black and white?
i LOVE displaying my books! we have a small bookcase which i call our "study" as it is right next to our writing desk. when we move to a bigger place some day i want a wall of books and a wall for our records too!xo,cb
