Yeah, so, that thing about plans and DIY sometimes have a tendency to... drag out. I bought this fancy shelf at Panduro and thought I'd paint it. Two years ago. I still used it and looked at it sometimes and thought to myself, I should paint that.
Then I sort of figured I could use it as a makeup shelf and therefore happened to stare at it much more often than I had before, and it just clicked last Sunday when I rummaged through my make and.. Yeah, I just did it. Panduro's hobby paint in the shade "Coffee", a favorite kind of antique brown shade, diluted in water and then painted over the entire shelf.
I like wood, but not the light kind of "scandinavian blonde" shade that is so popular now.
I sorted out things I didn't want in the shelf and put in new ones, and the whole process only took like 20 minutes. Gosh. Just do it has never been more fitting.
