Glam DIY Bookshelf - Jana Bek Design
This is a super simple bookshelf DIY that will add a dose of glam to any room.
What you need:
Ikea Vittsjö shelving unit,
Gold Paint (I had to hand paint as I was in my tiny NY apartment), I used inexpensive gold acryllic paint for a base coat then painted a top coat with this gold leaf paint to amp up the luxe look.
If you have the space, spray painting is the way to go!
I prefer Krylon Metallic paint in Bright Gold.
As always, be patient between coats! Even hand painting this was a speedy DIY.
Please send me pics if you try this, I'd love to share your success!
