Mini Libraries are trending for adults and kids. I snagged a fun 360 raw wood shelf off Amazon and turned it into a colorful mini library using Rust-Oleum Chalked in White Linen, the Rust-Oleum Clear Matte Chalked Sealant and Testors Craft Acrylic Craft Paint! I am excited for this to go in the girls playroom in the new house. I am going to let Lily decide how we organize her and Bella's library of books! Check out how easy it was to make!
- Rust-Oleum Chalked Spray Paint in White Linen
- Rust-Oleum Chalked Clear Matte Sealant Spray Paint
- Testors Craft Acrylic Craft Paint in a Variety of Colors
- Safety Gear
- Hot Glue Gun & Glue
- Make sure to read the safety instructions on the spray paint cans before getting started. Spray Paint outdoors or in a well ventilated room.
- Shake cans well before getting started.
- Spray in sweeping motions about 8-12" from the the project.
- Depending on the wood you will need to do multiple coats. The wood in my project sucked up the paint so I did many coats. I used 4 bottles in total (it was also windy day) Wait 15-20 minutes between coats.
- Next I wanted to add a pop a color so I used Testors Acrylic Paint to paint the shelf accents.
- Once dry finish by spraying on the Rust-Oleum Chalked Clear Matte Sealant. Let dry for at least 2 hours.
- For the final touch I glued trim around the edge of each level!
I love how this turned out! I am going to let me daughter Lily decide how she wants to organize her books!
