It’s time for another before and after! Woohoo!

I have owned this bookshelf since I graduated from college, and I couldn’t even tell you where I got it from.

I can tell you, however, that it has been painted multiple times and used for a variety of purposes – it’s current home being the girls’ bedroom.

There are 3 NEW PRODUCTS from Dixie Belle Paint that I was super excited to try out on this makeover and the one product especially I have fallen in love with!

Bookshelf Makeover For Girls Bedroom

To Get This Look You Will Need:

Bookshelf Makeover For Girls Bedroom

#1. Sand down the sides of the shelf.

Use 100 or 220 grit sandpaper to sand down the sides down to the natural wood. Wipe off the residual dust from the entire piece with a tack cloth.

#2. Paint the inside of the shelves with DB Desert Rose.

Dixie Belle Desert Rose Silk All-In-One Paint is a really pretty reddish pink that isn’t quite as bright in rel life as it appears in the pictures. The video is actually a more accurate portrayal of the color.

The Dixie Belle Au Naturel Voodoo Gel Stain does an amazing job at neutralizing any yellow undertones of the wood. I highly recommend watching the full YouTube video because you can get a much better picture of what the stain looks like going on.

These fairy stencils are the cutest! They would look super cute along the sides of a dresser, a nightstand, or inside a girls closet.

Voila!
