Old Shelf ReDo

So I found this shelf at the GoodWill for a whopping $2.99....SCORE! But it was just this ugly cream color. So I said to myself, "Self....you can totally just paint it DUHHH". So here is what this lovely piece looked like before:





It really wasn't that bad. I love the detail on this piece, but the color was, well ugly. There. I said it. I'm sorry....there's beautiful angels on it. If your wondering what its make of, I think its stone. Its SUPER heavy so I'm a little afraid to hang it on my wall, but thats where the hubby comes in with all his "hanging skills". I bought a spray can of Kilz primer and Valsper black spray paint in gloss. So first I sprayed it with the Kilz to prime it.


I let that dry for about an hour. I don't think you have to wait that long but I had to do my chores lol. Then I sprayed the black gloss paint on and wowwww. I love it. It just looks so cute to me now. The angels can sing once again!
