This shelf you see below is the last of the projects for the bedroom (all projects are listed on the bottom) before the small reveal… because it really is a small room – New York living folks! Today I’m sharing with you a simple makeover of a wall mounted shelf and a super easy way to add shimmer to that shelf.
What I Used:
The How To:
So when it came time to paint this wall mounted cubby shelf I thought I’d use up the rest of the paint. It took me three coats to cover up the wood.
If you look carefully on the right hand side of the photo you can see that the upper part is more subtle than the bottom. I used the DecoArt Metallic Lustre on the top and the Daddy Van’s Decorative Wax on the bottom.
But on top of the shine there are areas of pure shimmer. White light shimmer.
Those are the areas that I have gone over with the DecoArt Metallic Lustre. It gives the piece an extra bit of oomph! You can see how I used it on this project I did last year!
Of course they only show up when the light hits them.
It is beautiful and imperfect just like the crooked partition in my shelf.
Do you ever become nerdy like me and obsess over the meaning of words? And really we cannot be technical and worry about the true meaning here, just the essence should be enough!
Below are all the other projects from the bedroom makeover.
