Hi friends!! I am so excited to share my first blog post! Get ready because this is a good one. This DIY project is my favorite kind of project – taking something that is functional, yet bland and transforming it into something glam.
We have this corner in our apartment that looks SO empty. I’ve tried a few different things to fill it (vases and indoor plants), but I was never happy with how it looked. I decided a shelving unit would be the best fit for the space, so I started my search. I looked high and low and finally found something I thought had potential. I found this unit at IKEA and the best part you ask? $40!! Here it is after I put the 100 pieces together:
I knew as soon as I saw it that I would have to spruce it up. My first thought? GoLd!! I’m all about brass right now. (It’s coming back, ya know?!) I thought spraying it a metallic gold would give it that glam, brass look. I took the glass shelves out and gave it a coat of this:
As you can see, gold spray paint did this shelving unit wonders. I love how it turned out!! Such a big transformation. It even fits perfectly in our awkward corner!! I think it really fills that space.
I am in love with these birdies!
What do you think? Are you a gold lover? I’d love to hear your thoughts! Hope you all have a nice, relaxing weekend!
