Basic Bookshelf Made Better

October 24, 2010

I found an old bookshelf/DVD holder. It wasn’t exactly my taste with the plain white paint job and cut-out hearts at the top.

So with a little creativity I bumped it up a notch and made it my own.

 

What you need:

Paint

Scrapbook paper

Stencils

Shellac

 

I cut off the hearts and then painted one thin layer of the green paint over the white to give it a distressed/shabby chic look.

After the paint dried, I glued cut-out birds from scrapbook paper over the shelf. On the other side, I took a brown color paint and topped it with a white-wash paint over READ stencils.
