Our bookcase near our back door recently under went a spooky makeover for halloween. My son enjoyed picking through the old halloween decor and finding the crows. The picture is actually my grandfather, my mom’s dad. He passed away when I was 15 years old but I have many memories of him. He was a fairly quiet man and very conservative so this latest decor trend of a spooky bookcase involving him and crows may not be his thing as he looks down from heaven.ha
If you can believe this one, I took the doors off of a hutch that I am currently making new doors for. Doesn’t it look like you are looking through a window? I shopped our home for most of the items but did purchase the black net from Homegoods for $10. Places like Homegoods, TJMaxx, Marshalls and Target all have inexpensive fun halloween accessories to mix and match with what you currently already have. If you think about it, this bookcase has minimal elements added to it. The black spider net and crows are really the two halloween elements that stand out the most.
The reflection in the picture looks so creepy with the bat shadows! I also purchased a set of flameless candles that fit inside the lantern.
Our spooky bookcase built in for under $20 adds a fun halloween element to the corner of our family room. I had a little fun with halloween gadgets in my photoshop software. The vampire eyes & lighting bolt make my grandfather in the picture look a little freaky. He is either laughing or rolling over in his grave . See gramp, both you and gram have made the blog now.
