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 Brown, totally outdated country heart shelves.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…

Instructions:
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.
