Garage Sale Bookshelf Makeover; Frugal, Flowery, Fabulous

I found this bookshelf for $5 at a garage sale (the same day I won a radio contest, and a blog giveaway… should have bought a lottery ticket). I think it is actually a media CD/DVD shelf, and it is the perfect size for this narrow hallway wall. I didn’t have a plan, but I knew beauty was in the near future for this five dollar find.

I cleaned it with soap and water, then spray painted with Krylon Fusion Cocoa Brown Shimmer textured paint. Since I used Fusion, I didn’t have to sand or prime. Sweet. I chose this color so it would coordinate with this side table I posted previously.
I removed the shelves, cut scrapbook paper to size and adhered it to the shelves using matte gel medium, smoothing out the air bubbles with a brayer. To finish, I applied polycrylic to the shelves to seal the paper and waterproof. That is it. Simple, cute, under $10 and 1 hour of my time. Score. Spray paint and scrapbook paper have changed the way I decorate vastly!
