I have wanted to do some shelf her for some time. It only cost me under $10! I had the white paint and the 2x6 and bought the 1x8 for about $5.94 for a 6 foot board at Lowes (just make sure it is really straight).
I drew a pattern of the corbels that I wanted and cut them out of a 2x6 with a jig saw then sanded them down. Then glued/nailed them to the 1x8 board and let them dry.
Then I used my handy new paint sprayer (that I just LOVE) from Lowes. It is the GRACO 2900. It was $128 total and has already paid for its self in the time that is has saved me. I can paint things in way less time than before and it uses less paint and it dries faster and.....it is just wonderful!!! SWOON!
I was so excited when I first used it that I called my sister in law and told her all about it and she brought me down a table to paint. Then I brought out a dresser, shelf, three chairs and some frames and...well you get the idea I was just looking for things I could paint, because it was so easy and so fast! All these thing took me probably 45 minutes.
This table below was turquoise! There are all sorts of little details that would be awful to do with a brush!
Drawers that took me about 10 minutes for two coats of paint.
Some chairs that were dark brown.. yep about 10 minutes total! The sprayer is easy to use and it takes about 5 minutes to clean out. 5 minutes people, that is awesome!!!
Okay sorry for the little side track but I am really excited about my new toy!
I painted the shelf in oh about 5 minutes from start to finish. Then used my level and nail gun to mount it on the wall. Added some accessories and here is my new laundry room shelf.
Okay that is it for today. I am so glad you stopped by , have a good one. It is raining and snowing here today so I am trapped in the house cleaning :(
