I am so unbelievably happy with how this project turned out! It wasn't planned... but when I went to Micheals to get paint I found Folkart metallic aquamarine and fell in love! I painted two plain shelf units from targe and then sketched tattoo flash inspired pictures on the sides. I used a box lid and a candle holder for the heart and stars, but the rest was all free hand. I took the anchor image from an embroidery pattern but the heart was all from my head.

These are GREAT. I seriously love how they came out! Maybe one day DH will let me play with our furniture. I'm not holding my breath though.

I'd totally have to cheat and stencil though, there's NO way I could freehand!

The color blue (green?) you used for the shelves is beautiful.

These are fabulous! I love that metallic color. I can't believe you freehanded it. Job well done!

Did you have to sand these before you painted them?  I have some of the same shelves that I want to paint.  They look great!

your friends ask about me you say I can be found
with the cheap romance novels with their spines battered down
oh the heart has no bones you say so it wont break
but the purpose of loving is the pounding it takes

Thanks!
Nope! I didn't sand them I used a wood primmer and then I sealed them with furniture modge podge(sp?... I'm too lazy to get up and find the bottle Smiley)  I wasn't sure how it was going to work, but I think it turned out alright.
