I did not really want to paint it, but someone had glued tissue paper to the shelves and the finish was ruined.
The only before shot.
Bottoms up and ready for paint.
I decided a satin black would be great to cover the flaws.
However the brown stain kept showing through.
Then it dawned on me the color was NOT black but BRONZE!
I had picked up the wrong can.
Only had a partial can so off to Hobby Lobby for another can of Oil Rubbed Bronze - Krylon.
OUT OF STOCK!?!
Ran next door to Lowe's who had Oil Rubbed Bronze in Rust-Oleum so I took a chance.
Luckily it matched.
I liked the highlights of bronze in the paint.
Love the mission style of the slats.
This was definitely a homemade, but well-made, piece.
I have only used this bronze on metal pieces, but plan to use it on another furniture piece soon.
I will make sure to have enough on hand before I start something.
The back looks as good as the front.
The bookshelf could be used as a divider.
