Nursery Inspiration: DIY Painted Shelves

May 14, 2015

Nursery decor, DIY painted shelves,
Here’s a lovely nursery project for you, pretty Mamas! We made these shelves last year for sweet Stella’s nursery, and it was such a fun project! The shelves look precious in her room too. Step by step instructions below…

1: Buy these $7.99 shelves from Ikea. They are called the Fabian shelf and they come with metal hinges and are super easy to drill into the wall.

2: Dry brush an antique white paint onto all sides of the shelves. Use a large dry paint brush and dip a small amount of paint onto it. Then brush it on to the shelf in a coarse, carefree manner. It creates a lovely farmhouse feel to the shelves. Let dry (doesn’t take long!).

3: Decide what shapes you want to paint onto the shelves so you can tape off the patterns. We used painters tape. You need to paint on all sides of shelf because you’ll be able to see the bottom as well as the top. This was the fun creative part! We went with some simple stripes on one, and got whimsical on the third!

4: Paint! We chose 4 different colors from Michaels, but the world is your oyster on this one.

1. Martha Stewart ANTIQUE SILK Pearl Craft Paint

2. Craft Smart SILVER Metallic Paint

3. Americana CORAL BLUSH Acrylic paint

4. Dazzling Metallics SILVER SAGE Paint
