Get this “simple to do” wooden glimpse with paint and stain on any undertaking from household furniture to decor!
Hi my fantastic buddies! Wow, everyday living has been so outrageous close to right here lately. SO considerably likely on. I will be happy when points settle down a little bit so I can get again to all the pleasurable projects I have prepared. I hope you haven’t minded seeing some older posts I have pulled from the archive! I determine some of you might have missed them the first time around so may be a fantastic time to revisit.
But today I’ve acquired a new one particular for ya! I am trying tough to get this hall rest room finished. (and it just about is other than for decorating and a number of last touches, yippee!)
You could possibly recall when I initial regarded as redoing this toilet (once more) here… Corridor Bathroom Temper Board & Designs
If you click on around to test that out you will see my original options for the lavatory. Unfortunately, matters went in a bit of a diverse path rather mainly because I could not get that vanity cupboard. BUT I really like how it went! In some cases items just function out for the superior, adore that.
I’m not exhibiting you the entire rest room today. I’m sharing the floating cabinets that I gave a “wood look” to with paint and stain.
My partner and I created these floating shelves years back. You can read through all about it in this submit right here … Do-it-yourself Floating Shelves Tutorial
And as a refresher…here is how they utilised to search with the aged wall coloration.
They glance fantastic in white with that wall coloration.
But not so wonderful with this color…
Which is not “white-white” though it seems it. It’s my favourite smooth (not warm) white that I utilised in our kitchen area, early morning home and eating home downstairs.
It is a color by Benjamin Moore identified as Pure White. I experienced it colour matched at Sherwin Williams while.
I understood I preferred them to have a wood search for the reason that of all the things else I have going on in here. There are a number of approaches to do it but I made the decision to do it related to how I not long ago did the bath cabinet in our downstairs visitor tub. You can see it right here … Coastal Guest Tub Refresh
I did do one little tiny issue unique on these though. I’ll display ya! )
I started by taping the shelves up with my absolute preferred tape.
Then I painted them with the Cobblestone paint linked earlier mentioned.
And then the added phase that I did this time…dry brushing on some of the “Ash” coloration. (see it higher than?)
I just considered that may possibly give it a bit additional dimension like true wooden has beneath the stain.
I believe it was a excellent preference. Extra may well have been even greater.
After that was dry (I allow it sit right away considering the fact that it is drinking water centered and the stain is oil based) I applied the stain. (with a lint absolutely free rag)
See the bottom just one I stained? The major one is nevertheless just paint.
Is not that the coolest? I enjoy how it appears wood-ish. And oh so basically much too!
Here’s yet another shot to see the top superior. (with the light on)
So significantly much better than white. There is a lot of white likely on in listed here presently, the shelves didn’t will need to be white much too! lol
I’m so satisfied with how they turned out. That Driftwood stain is versitile, I tell ya!
And a person of the darker stains I sell in the shop would function nicely far too if you are going for a darker wooden look.
A minor sneak peek of the new mirror.
By the way, this is not the remaining styling of the shelves, I just threw that up there for the images.
May well be shut to that though, we’ll see!
A number of near ups of that wood glimpse we have heading on now.
Have you tried using the Driftwood stain but?? I know a bunch of you have ordered it! I’ve experienced to restock it various situations. 🙂
