MAKE IT / 33
our last DIY post, we showed you how to fancy up those ugly power cords running around your office. this week we’re going to show you a VERY simple way to add some glamour to your bookshelf. buy some rocks…or just go on a walk and find some you like. then all you have to do is spray paint them gold. (makes me miss sifting for gold in that computer game oregon trail) we added a pink ombre to the bottom…we made paperweights…polkadot designs. make yours unique!
what you’ll need:
• large rocks (available at building supply shops, be sure that you find ones that sit at a nice angle when you place them next to each other. we also recommend giving you rocks a good scrub before you start your project so that the paint adheres well)
• metallic gold spray paint (be sure to get the super shiny stuff)
• small cork adhesive pads
• we added cork pads to the bottom so they don’t scratch the surface & move easily.
and that is IT! not a hard project, but a nice impact on the shelf, right?
we hope you give this one a shot!
