One room on my project list this year is to dress up the office. A couple of years ago we scored beautiful solid oak computer desk from a couple who were downsizing and refused to move it again. After moving it into our home, I can't say I blame them. It's huge and very, very heavy. And those white shelves? They looked cheap by way of comparison. Since I used paint that was custom tinted at home by yours truly and I don't have enough to patch and repaint the wall, I needed to find a way to work with those shelves.
I picked up a stick of trim at Lowes for about $7, cut it with a mitre saw, and glued it in place. Since it's too cold outside for spray painting, I used my favorite bronze craft paint. This stuff will stick to just about anything!
It took several coats to cover the white, but it dries really fast. And the results:
No more little girl white shelves. These are big-people shelves now.
I overhauled the accessories too. More about that later.
