M.I.A

Wow! Since school has started back I have not had the time to work on any projects! Boo!!! I think {hopefully} we should be getting into some kind of routine...we will be on week 3 Monday.

My mom is a 1st grade teacher. She rocks too! She has one of the cutest classrooms ever. She asked me to paint some of her classroom furniture this summer. So last weekend I painted her book cart lime green and black zebra. She has a jungle theme going on...but wanted to add some "POPS" of color!

This weekend I have been working on this little bookshelf for her room. Here is the before...

Such a cute little shelf...simple with a cute scallop edge...this piece was in my room as I was growing up...so it's truly vintage...lol! I sanded this beauty and primed it. Then painted it with a flat black spray paint. After the spray paint dried, I used strips of torn painters tape to make zebra stripes...this will work as a mask.


Then I sprayed Krylon's Ocean Breeze Blue {my favorite color right now} on the sides of the bookshelf.


Remove the tape when the spray paint is dry. And VIOLA~ instant zebra stripes!!!!


I decided she really needed a little more wow factor, so I used Krylon's Sun Yellow on the top and to pop that darling scalloped edge...and of course EVERYTHING needs a little polka dot action....I think she turned out precious....and MOM loves it!!!!!
