Bookshelf {before & after}

Spray paint is one thing that can make a HUGE difference!  While I don't use it that often, I went on a spray painting frenzy a few days ago.  This year the theme of my room is blue and green.  I have some things light blue, some bright blue, and some dark blue.  I think the contrast adds a lot.  One of my bookshelves was just pitiful.  It's old, it's grey, it's just plain ole' ugly.  So, I decided I must spray paint it.  Here it is BEFORE...
And here is the AFTER!  My terrible old bookshelf has turned into a beauty! 
I am so happy with how it turned out!  I think it will just POP in my classroom!  Do you use spray paint on anything in your classroom?

  1. LOVE the blue! Being a newbie to spray painting furniture, is there something you put on after the paint to seal it? Thanks for sharing your bookcase :)

  3. This is what we're doing tomorrow! SO glad we hopped onto your blog for motivation. That color is so cute and the same colors as our class too. :)

    We are seriously considering spray painting our metal file cabinets and we have a metal shelf too. A little scared, but figure its classroom furniture, not home, so what do we have to lose. :)

    Thanks for sharing!

  5. Man, I really wish we could paint the furniture in our classrooms! Some of our bookshelves look like they have been through a tornado! Your shelf looks so happy now!

  6. Thermal Coatings , exits the anode nozzle as a free or neutral plasma flame (plasma which does not carry electric current) which is quite different to the Plasma Transferred Arc coating process where the arc extends to the surface to be coated.
