Here is what they looked like when I got them:
Like I said they had previously been used to make something else then taking apart so they were a little roughed up. Not a big deal to me because I knew I would paint them, simple fix for most things!
I chose to spray paint them because of all the chips in the wood. I used a gray satin by Rustoleum..
They still look a little rough but that is the look I am going for. I wanted a vintage look because this is eventually going in my sons room. I brush painted the shelf parts so they would have a worn light finish.
I haven't yet connected them together, because they will be going upstairs. When I get to that part I will be using some wood glue and a few nails to secure them.
And here it is all staged in the living room for now. I think it turned out pretty good. This was a super easy, and cheap project. My plan for this in my sons room will involve some cute cloth bins for toys.
How do you think it turned out?
