One of the pieces we had was a bookshelf. It was a good bookshelf but I have always hated the color and the wood. I wanted to use it in Levi's room to sit books on it, and other decorative items, but he now has a pine bed that is honey colored and a cherry colored dresser (which I plan on painting), and the oak bookshelf would have looked even worse alongside those other pieces. So last weekend Justin and I got out the sandpaper, primer, paint, and glaze and got down to business.
Before we started it looked like this:
I lightly sanded it, then primed it with KILZ spray primer
PURDY brush at Lowe's. It was pricey but well worth it. It gave us a perfect paint job.
