Step by Step
Start by lightly sanding the wood to get a surface that the paint will stick to. Then wipe off the sanding dust with a microfiber cloth.
Tip!Make sure to remove all sanding dust afterwards. A microfiber cloth is particularly effective.
Prime the shelves with a base coat in the colour of your choice. This is done to make the paint stick better and last longer. Use a brush in corners and joints and paint with a mini roller on large areas.
Once the primer has dried, it’s time to paint. As with the base coat, roller and brush are combined.
Once the painting is done, tiles, in this case Voltaire evergreen from Marrakech Design, are put on the shelf as a top. It gives a nice look and protects the surface at the same time. It can therefore be used as a workbench, for planting plants and storing tools and pots.
