Yesterday was a painting in the sunshine kinda day :) I finished this shelving unit with white base and mid-blue top coat, so that on distressing the two colours peep through, along with the wood. This gives the piece a really interesting finish with more depth than single-toned pieces.
It was fairly time consuming painting the shelves inside and out in several layers, but I love the effect of the matt blue inside and out! Classic, beachy, kids???
