Got an old bookshelf and don’t know how to renovate it? Here’s a project from diypassion.com! Take your bookshelf and use a sander to strip the sides and the front bits of stain. The prime and paint the inside of the shelf, here the author wanted a greyish shade. Once it is dry, tape off the other side and restain the bare pine with gel stain in Aged Oak. Use some basic brass upholstery nails to add detail to the sides of the shelf – and also to hide some of the nails that are peeking through the stained wood. Then using an arrow stencil add a pattern to the back of the shelf in a graphite grey. Here it’s basic acrylic craft paint for this part. A couple of coats of Polycrylic sealant and voila!
