I bought this bookshelf two years ago for $8. It sat in the "Store For Old Furniture"(the basement as my hubby calls it), looking like this:
In my head it was done and beautiful from the moment I saw it. Most of my projects are played, replayed and finished in my head many times and long before I grab the sander and the paintbrush.
Step by step how I did it:
Light sanding down all over(gets the surface better to paint, in my opinion);
Primed it,with a brush(important step, covers ugly flowers and blemishes)
Let it dry completely;
Sanded it down with fine sandpaper for smooth finish before painting:
I sprayed the back of the thin wooden piece with craft spray glue which held the batting down in place long enough to cover it with the fabric. I glued the fabric down again with craft glue. I didn't need strong glue because it was being stapled down onto the bookshelf with staple gun.
|The batting gives it a soft feel.|
I love this fabric.
Now all the Lalaloopsy people have a place to sit and party together.
Have fun my friends!
Until next time
