Happy (fake) Monday! I was off work yesterday for President's Day, so today feels like a Monday to me. I love a short work week, but find me someone who doesn't.
This weekend I finally tackled a project I've been putting off for over a year. I had a small white shelving unit I used as a night stand in college. When I moved to my current apartment over a year ago, I needed an entryway table, so I decided to use it as such instead of spending money on something new. There was one slight problem. The unit was white, and the color scheme in my living room/dining room area is deep brown and red.
I always knew I was going to spray paint it (it's not real wood) a deep brown, but I wasn't sure exactly what color to use, what kind of spray paint to use and I needed the temperature outside to be right.
I did some Google research and determined the spray paint I should use is Krylon Fusion (a little less than $5 a can). I made a stop at Wal-Mart on Saturday and during my nephew's afternoon nap, I got to work. I cleaned the shelving unit, put it on a tarp on my balcony and started spraying. After about 30 minutes of dry time, I moved my madeover entryway table back inside and I think the brown looks lovely. Now I need to do some antique shopping to find some fun treasures to decorate the shelves with. What do you think of the finished spray paint project?
