Mrs. Rooster here again . . . . to get you caught up to date on craft projects in my world, I have been nesting at my office and redoing my office space. I went treasure hunting again and I picked up a superb purchase. I really wanted a shelf with hooks so I could come into my office hang my purse, keys, and jacket. I had found several cute shelves at HL and Wal-mart but they were not in my budget (my very tight, tight, tight budget $$$). As I was browsing through our local Goodwill I came across a sad and broken shelf. It was hideous. However it fit the profile for shape and style for the shelf I was wanting. This wonderful piece of treasure was purchased at the low price of $4.99! I was on cloud nine!
I took off the wooden spindle's, took the door off of the front that was held in on with hinges. The hearts are cute but not the style in my shabby chic office, so they had to go. The decorative heart piece was screwed in so with a few twist and turns of screwdriver this show piece was ready to be prepped for paint. You know I had to paint it...it is a NO for the office in that baby puke green...YAK!
I picked up a can of black spray paint - $3.49, and a box of two wooden spindle's $2.34. I went home and glued the spindle's in with Gorilla Glue. (side note - if you don't have Gorilla Glue, invest in some - it is must have in the world of crafts and refinishing things) I applied a little wood filler to the rough spots and screw holes and let dry. The next morning I sanded everything down with a piece of fine grit sandpaper to a smooth finish. This only took like 15 minutes. I whipped out my can of black spray paint and went to town!
