New Shelf's New Home

Last week I showed you my in-progress pics of my $18 bookshelf re-do.

Here are the finished pics, once I got it set in place in its new home with its new residents....

I used Valspar's Clear Mixing Glaze mixed with several colors of acrylic craft paint, then topped it off with a coat of poly. I love the effects you can create with the glaze - it's the base for most of the faux finish treatments that are so popular today...

Not bad for $18!

Hope you're having a great week!



  1. Beautiful! I wondered how it would come out - now it's an heirloom to be handed down generation after generation with the notation that Auntie beth, or Nana Beth made this herself!
