SHABBY CHIC BATHROOM SHELF

Full View - Bathroom Shelf



This was another estate sale find. Sorry, I do not recall what I paid for it. It had a few coats of paint on it, which had to be removed. The stripping was fairly easy, since most of the surfaces were flat. I like using "Back To Nature READY-STRIP". I order this through QVC.

And of course, it would not be "Shabby Chic", unless it has a few coats of linen white paint.


Close Up Side

This was my first attempt at decorative painting. It's a little primitive, but adds some charm, to an otherwise plain piece.

Donna Dewberry has a wonderful series of Kits, which includes videos, paints, brushes and practice sheets. It is a wonderful way to learn about decorative painting. I also ordered these items through QVC. They have the best prices on kits.







Top


To cover the top, I painted a piece of anaglypta wall paper. I frequently find spare rolls of wall paper at yard sales. They can be used in so many different types of projects. I painted the paper to match the shelf, and then, to give it a nice sheen, I applied two coats of DecoArt Metallic Oyster Pearl Paint.







RESOURCES:


PAINT

The first time I purchased flat linen white paint was at K-mart. It was part of the Martha Stewart Line. Since then I have had it mixed at Home Depot. If you let them know the brand and name of the paint color, they can mix it for you. Lowes can probably do the same thing.


METALLIC PAINTS

DecoArt has a wide variety of metallic paint colors. You can find DecoArt Paint at Wal-Mart and Craft Stores. If you prefer to shop on-line
www.createforless.com has great prices.


DONNA DEWBERRY PAINT KITS

I ordered my sets from 
www.qvc.com, the prices are great! If you need additional paint, you can find the FolkArt Paint at Wal-Mart. These are the kits I have: Kit Item #F14905 & F27876. 


READY STRIP

I also order the Ready Strip from 
www.qvc.com. Kit Item #V17531 & Refill Item #V17533.
