When we moved into our home, all the walls were white and the cabinets were builder grade oak. I explored some options on how to bring some personality into this hallway nook and decided to use paint, stencils, floating glass shelves, and a Rustoleum cabinet transformation kit.
First, I painted the inside wall Zen by Benjamin Moore and then I used a moroccan stencil to apply metallic silver paint.
After finishing the wall stencil, I installed 2 floating glass shelves that I ordered at a glass store to fit into the space. I bought floating shelf brackets on Ebay that install on the back wall so it appears that the glass is floating, hence floating glass shelves!
Next, I refinished the hallway cabinet. I bought the Rustoleum cabinet transformation kit in espresso which includes the stain, poly, and poly remover. Remove the poly from the cabinet before you re-stain it.
Apply the stain to the cabinet with a cheese cloth or paint brush. Finish it off with a coat of poly to seal in the perfection! Don't set anything on it for at least 48 hours.
Materials I used for this project:
- Floating Glass Shelves
- Rustoleum Cabinet Transformation
