The shelf I posted pictures of yesterday is complete. It is shockingly different from how it looked yesterday! I was going to spray paint it, but then I realized that it is far too cold outside to do any spraying painting and I really didn’t want to die from inhaling too many fumes by doing it inside. Not too mention the probable mess it would create! I went with a plain old paint and brush and it worked just great.
Just for a refresher here are the pictures I posted yesterday…
Now the moment of truth! I will be planning to add some more accessories to the shelf soon, but I need to find just the right things.
As you can see on the close ups, I did an aged patina effect by wiping black glaze over the notched parts and then wiping the excess off with a damp cloth. I like the effect it gives to an old piece of furniture.
Do you just love the saying in the frame. It says, “At any given moment I have the power to say this is not how the story is going to end.” I just love it and it is so fitting for the year we have had. Now that this shelf is hanging the laundry room/bathroom, it feels like the room is coming along nicely. More in the near future on the progress of the space. Slowly, but surely!
I suppose I better give a break down of the cost of this project.
Shelf $2.99 at Goodwill, Paint $6.00 at Walmart, everything else I already had. Total cost: $8.99 (Pretty crazy that the shelf was cheaper than the paint!!)
