Quick little shelf makeover

I had this little shelf that I had bought on clearance at Home Goods a while back for like $5, but I never had a place for it. I needed a shelf in my bathroom, but it didn't quite fit {being black and all} so I gave it a cheap little makeover. So cheap I only spent the original $5, nothing more.

Here is the original shelf. Cute, but not what I needed.


I gave it a nice coat of white paint and roughed up the edges a little to make it a little distressed {since it's bounded to look that way eventually}.


I used some scrapbook paper I had to fill the two square glass pieces. I just painted on some mod podge, place the paper on top and let that dry. Then I put on a top coat to seal them. I also used some oil rubbed bronze spray paint that I had to paint the brass hooks.


Voila! New shelf that matches my bathroom.

Go check out Kimba's DIY day and Today's creative blog and Trash to Treasure Tuesday for more DIY ideas.
