Country Shelves Turned Distressed Chic Hip…

I found these oak, country 80's knick knack shelves at Goodwill for $2.99 total. They were brown oak, which you can kinda see through the first coat of the black spray paint. I was so excited to do these that I forgot to photograph them before I jumped in, but you can imagine. Brown, totally outdated country heart shelves. Moving on...
Sand lightly and spray paint with black (I used flat Rustoleum). Let dry and recoat if needed. With acrylic paint pen by Sharpie, I added gold to the edges and lightly sanded for a distressed look once dry. I sprayed a coat of matte finish. Onto embellisments...
I slapped some scrapbook chipboard shapes to cover the hearts. Added some bows and flowers, attaching everything to the shelves with a dab of hot glue.
I also drilled a hole in the bottom of each shelf for the knob placement. Hard to tell in the pics, but the flowers each have a letter in the middle, spelling "FAITH" down the shelf on the left. Adorable, cheap, and easy. The shelves I mean.
