I was given an old MDF bookshelf for free. It had dark brown laminate as the ones that people had 20-15 years ago. I needed some storage for my countless magazines and it's shape and size were perfect for that purpose. I started by painting it white....
I did two coats on most parts but didn't really care for it being perfect. I just want to lighten it up.
Then the fun began. I applied my secret weapon. Spanish raised stencil. I mixed in a bit of grey but not much.
The transformation was amazing! From updated to fresh and romantic. It is one of my favourite projects and a lot of my guests comment on how elegant it looks. If you want to see the "before" picture of the self follow the link below.
