My cousin has blogged several times about things she has made over with chalk paint, so when Ben threatened to throw away my bookshelf I pleaded with him to try and paint it. We found Annie Sloan paint, which is pretty pricey at a store downtown and now we must paint everything!!
Crafting is not my forte, and if it includes paint, chances are Ben has done it. But I did this. I painted it, and Ben roughed up the edges with sand paper. Took about 3 hours and 1 quart of cream white paint. We originally wanted to paint the inside of the cabinet black, but I want to use the black paint for my kitchen table instead. We also thought since the room was kind of dark especially this corner the white would brighten it up.
