Painting A Pine Bookshelf

I'm still plugging along on my little boy's nautical bedroom.  One of the furniture pieces I salvaged from another room in the house is this pine bookcase.  Originally it was in my master bedroom. I really love it.  It is so simple in it's design, with neat adjustable shelves that work by moving a small trapezoidal shelf supports up and down a series of 'shark teeth" on the edge of the bookcase.

I plan on redoing my bedroom furniture in the future, so after a lot of back and forth, I decided I could use this in the nursery and paint it.  I just don't think 'knotty pine' will ever be in my design future.

After priming with Zinnser 1-2-3 (eventually I used 3 coats to hid the knots) I moved on to paint:

I used some of my "Ikea White" custom color I used on my mudroom built-ins(for the formula see this post.) I then decided to paint the back an accent color (I used the leftover Raspberry Truffle tester paint.)

After it was done, I refilled it with all Baby J's books and toys:

I really like the dark red backing, it actually brings out the fact it is planked:

And here it is, in its final home, under my shower curtain artwork wall:

Now I only have to tackle my upholstered glider and pine side table, and I can mark "furniture" off my list!
