Remember those bookshelves??
I picked up some paint for them. Green for the sewing room and blue for the bedroom.
I have the bedroom bookshelf finished. I took a clean/simplistic approach and I really like it. I could have gone all crazy and painted all over it... but I kind of want the things (especially the books on the sewing room shelf) to be the shining stars - and have the paint just be a fun accent!
I only painted the front edges of the shelves. Then in the backdrop of two of the shelves, I did a polka-dot pattern with a stamping effect. I can show you how that was done - easily!!
All you need is:
- A ruler and a marking tool (I had to use a white colored pencil)
- A "round something" that has the size circle that you need (I used a bottle from a drink because the cap was the size that I wanted!)
- A piece of felt, hot glued to the "round something" and cut to the size you need
- A little plate or bowl of paint
First you mark out your dot pattern - using your ruler for perfection purposes! Staggering the dot usually looks best!
Then take your round thing (bottle with cap, with felt glued to it!) and dip it in the paint... wiping off some of the excess (too much gooey paint and it won't look like a stamp, it'll look like a blob of paint!). Stamp stamp stamp over all the marks you've made.
Now run along and try this yourself!
Spread dots around the world :)!!
