Woohoo!!! I'm still going strong in the One Crafty Contest over at One Artsy Mama!!!
I am officially in the Top 3!!! and I can NOT believe it!!! I am having the BEST time in the contest and am so thankful that my bloggy bestie, Chacoy, convinced me to sign up!!! :)
I am catching up on some blog posts tonight and hope to show you my latest project tomorrow!!!
AHHH!!!! Glitter. I have to admit I was a little speechless! Glitter!!!
After a few days of panicking because I had no clue what to make I finally decided to work on an old bookcase that I had been wanting to makeover for Bella's bedroom!
(notice a theme here... so far all of my projects had been for Bella's bedroom)
Here is the bookcase when I got started! It was my grandmothers and it was pretty beat up. It had some water damage on the top and needed a good wash. I loved the scalloped design along the top but wasn't thrilled with the little rail on the top shelf so I decided to remove it.
Once the rail was removed I immediately loved it a million times more!!!!
Then I went ahead and got started sanding it and removing the backer board
which was cracked and splintered.
Once it was all sanded I got started painting the shelves and outer sides. When I had the blue and white all finished I used Krylon Glitter Blast in Diamond Dust and sprayed it over the blue. I have to admit I was a little scared at first but the Glitter Blast comes out so evenly and is such a fine glitter that really shimmers. I was beyond impressed! and for only $4.00 a can it can't be beat! Plus it comes in other colors:)
and TA DA!!!!! Isn't she a beauty!?!?!? Bella LOVES having a little shelf in her bedroom since we took out her dresser!!! and it works perfectly to store all her little treasures!!!
Thanks so much to everyone who voted!!!!
