This is what the shelf looked like at first.
First plan with the individual shelves... orange spray paint...
Then... plan B with the shelves... Red Acrylic...
The body of the shelf got a glossy brown.
The shelf was missing a backing, so I cut some cardboard from an old poster frame to fit & painted it bright red.
Moving on to attach the backing to the shelf... I used my staple gun for the first time :D I totally didn't know that it took so much strength to fire that thing...
All put together & waiting for the shelves :)
Clearly, I gave up on the orange & then red shelves... I painted over the red with the same brown as the body of the shelf.
The finished shelf full of half of my mug collection :D It came out quite nicely, if I do say so myself.
