Here's how I did it...
Step 1 - removed the shelves
Step 2 - unscrewed the turntable mechanism
Step 3 - gave it a really good wash and a light sanding, to provide a key for the paint
|I used Rust-o-leum Chalk Paint, two coats overall, including under the shelves|
|Done! Two coats of chalk paint, then stamping with a foam stamp and Artist Quality acrylic paints by PaperArtsy in several colours: Ice Blue, Guacamole, Lime and Chalk White|
|The inside of the shelves - I painted them top and underneath, and stamped on top, as well as the sides and back of the inside.|
|This takes CDs, Prima sprays, Dylusions sprays etc - and it spins around! Great space saver.|
|Plenty of room for PaperArtsy paint bottles - also fits Martha Stewart paints etc.|
I think it's a whole lot prettier than the original brown varnished wood. And the more beat up it gets, over time, the more Shabby Chic it's going to look!
