I love DIYs, can you tell? As I started this semester, I realized that my design tools are increasing and my room storage is decreasing. My books and Magazine has just been piling up and has been a little everywhere. Since my bedroom is fairly small, organization is a must, so I knew I had to find a solution. As I was looking around on the web, pinterest, and blogger, I came across Ana Antunes Home Styling. I have a For Living 4-Tire Black Wire Shelf that I use for plant display and was inspired to glam it up and use it for my design shelving. Anna Antunes, shows how gold and pastels can really glam up a space. Below are some of the photos from her blog that inspired me.

To begin...

You should start off by purchasing two Rust-Oleum Universal Metallic Gold Spray Paint cans which you can either purchase at your local craft store or hardware store. I purchased mine at Canadian Tire for $9.99 + taxes each. Initially I thought one spray can would do the job, but than I realized that since the shelf isn't opaque, a lot of the paint were going to waste in the air, therefore I needed to go back and purchase a second one.  After shopping for your spray paint cans, make sure you clean your shelf off any dust with a wet lukewarm cloth. Once you have done like so, let the shelf dry from the wet cloth and prepare your station to paint. Since the spray paint is pretty strong in smell, try to set up this station either in a garage, outside, or anywhere that you don't have to worry about getting messy, and at the same time, somewhere where you can leave it to dry. This is a very easy DIY which allows you to glam up your room, so have fun with it.


So let me show you my DIY.



FYI: It took 48hrs for my shelf to completely dry from double coating. 
















And VOILA.... The Finish Product!
