I have had this Craft shelf for a couple of years now. I loved it at first. Then I decided it didn’t really match my decor. (even though I now think it still matched just not the way I wanted it to) It was out in the garage to go to the goodwill. Then I was looking at it and thought to myself- like I do with many things in the goodwill pile- ‘I still like it, it just needs paint’ my answer to many pieces of furniture.
I got my favorite paint out, Annie Sloan chalk paint in French Linen. I put one coat on and soon realized I needed to add a few more. But this is totally normal when painting over something that has gloss. The cool thing is with this paint I don’t have to prime or sand. So adding extra coats of paint is easy.
Here are the pictures with the steps for the makeover.
