The reason why I decided to change it, is because I spilled a white paint sample all over it, my floors and the wall. Good times…
Since it was ruined I had to paint it.
I sanded all the outside edges to get rid of as much of the texture from that paint splatter looking finish and gave it a good cleaning with a soapy damp cloth.
After two coats of primer I was satisfied with the results.
I painted the inside with liquid gold paint and the outside with a high gloss black paint.
Side note: this color scheme would look stunning on a bar cart and goes well with most decor.
I wanted it to feel a little bit masculine. I want to add more neutral/masculine pieces to give the room balance. This shelf also acts and a little bit of a divider for the dinning room/kitchen and the living room. I plan to reinforce that with the paint when I get to it!
I added clear sticky dots onto the glass so that there is a barrier between the metal and the shelves.
