A shelf makeover...

01.28.13
A friend of mine asked me if I could do something with this shelf. It's for her bathroom that is going to be done in browns and light blues. Any suggestions?? I was thinking of re-staining it and spray painting the gold a silver.

    I like your ideas of refinishing and spraying the metal parts silver. I'd see if you could remove two of the metal "balusters" for lack of a better name, on either side of the center "baluster" to allow her to hang a couple hand towels.

    I would sand and spray paint this small project. Paint it choc. brown and use small stencil pattern to add the blue on top of the brown. Then, I would stencil somewhere else in the bathroom to match. Maybe reverse the stencil with the brown

    You could also find a pretty ribbon in her blue color or blue/brown and weave it through the metal "balusters" to add more color.
