Shelving Rehab

Look at this ugly corner shelving unit I grabbed in Indiana over the summer.

I paid money for it and hauled it back to Columbus. Moved it around a few times and finally decided I needed to make this look better.  I was tired of looking at it.

For starters, I ripped the lovely fabric off.  That alone did wonders.

But as usual, paint is what transforms a piece.  I debated about color for some time.  My original thought was a distressed black finish.  Annie Sloan Chalk Paint, Duck Egg, was a little softer, so I decided to go for it.

My plan was to use this corner shelf as a display unit.  But when I completed the piece, I knew I had to sell it.  It turned out better than I expected!

I painted both the top and bottom of each shelf.  The backside of the shelving is painted black (the part that faces the wall).

Very light distressing on the edges, gives it a more up-to-date vibe.

Ahh, the power of paint!

This is a darling piece that’s available at Simply Vague-Tuttle Mall.

Thanks for popping in.  Have a great Monday!
