My mom gave me a bookshelf (which we needed really bad!). It was a light oak color which just did not match my house colors whatsoever. I have cherry wood and black for everything. I wanted to be able to use this right away and did not have a lot of time to spend on it so I decided to spray paint it. I am very happy with how it turned out! It works great in my daughters bedroom for all of those Scholastic book orders- I am completely addicted lol I have a table I want to stain using "ebony" and I will decide which look I like better but for now this really dressed the bookshelf up. Sorry I didn't take before pictures. My camera charger went missing for awhile.
Do you prefer to stain or spray paint furniture?? I would love links to anything you have redone!! I am just getting started and welcome all tips. Thanks for stopping by :o)
