Yesterday my boyfriend(Shawn)'s family used our yard for a garage sale. Needless to say, it didn't go well. BUT the upside of that is I got to go through all of the leftovers and keep a bunch of goodies! One of the items I scored was this little shelf.
This is where all the sanding excitement comes in! POWER TOOLS, WOOHOO! ::self high-five:: Anyway, after it was sanded I painted the shelf high glossy black. Of course I was anxious for the paint to dry (like always)! After the paint was dry, I did something unexpected....(oh the suspense)..... I screen printed the shelf pieces! (I have been dying to use the lace pattern I burned into my screen Thursday in class) Being fairly new to the screen print world I was unsure if the ink two would "stick" to the painted surface... and to my surprise it did! The result was absolutely gorgeous!!
