Before and After: Office Bookshelves
Thought I’d show off my shelves I made over. These are the ones I did back in March when I was working on my books.
They started off at basic black metal shelves that came from the old hospital here in Clarksville. When the new hospital was built what wasn’t taken over was donated to the Habatate for Humanity ‘ReStore’ shop. (I love that place!)
To start I sprayed two coats of Rustoleum metal primer. I think that first coat looked pretty cool… I’m going to remember that look for a later project!
Then came three coats of Vespar paint from Lowes. I took time to let each cure up before putting on the next coat.
Here’s the finished shelves; in my office and loaded up. I even have space to work with!
