Getting the Shelf Painted

I guess technically I shouldn't have said that it was finished.  I had just finished by building process.  So this weekend, I broke out the spray paint and went to town.  After attempting to paint it with no respiratory, I quickly realized there was no way I was going to get it painted without one  So off I went to our Jabo's Ace Hardware and bought me a really cute pink one.


I would highly recommend one of these if you're painting a fairly large project with spray paint.


I still need to paper the back of the shelves or Mod Podge some fabric.  I can't decide which one.  I guess I still can't say it really is finished until I do that.

    1. You really do need one. I tried holding my breath while I was painting for a while but I'm old and I was afraid I would pass out. lol

  2. There are times I wish I had one on. Especially when the wind blows it all back to me! Your shelf is looking good!
