Salvage Old Builtin Bookshelf?
Our living room has circa 1980, floor to ceiling builtin shelving in one corner, about 4 ft in one direction and 5 ft in the other. It appears to be pine that was painted by the PO (and the knots are bleeding). My wife wants me to demo the whole thing. It goes against my grain to throw out perfectly good stuff, but it's really not very attractive as is. Any ideas what I could do to make this worth keeping? I'm not really keen on latex painted boards myself. Thanks in advance, Mike
