We bought this little shelf from Target about 7 years ago (a few months before we got married). It somehow made it through 5 moves without falling apart.
For the past several months, it has been taking up a wall in our master bedroom...I just could not figure out what else to do with it. I had a little motivation to start working on a few master bedroom projects over the weekend since Ash was in TN with my parents.
So I decided to make a few updates.
Christopher begged me not to paint it. His words were, "Once you paint it, you will never have that smooth wood finish again." Oh, yeah...that smooth plastic-y laminate finish that you get on a $39 piece from Target. I think I'll survive.
2 coats of primer and 2 coats of paint later (I just mixed a few colors together that we had in our paint cabinet).
And the finished result after adding some desperately needed updated pictures and a few accessories from Marshall's and Pier One. I like it so much better now. And my husband admitted I was right. Don't you love when that happens???????
