easy glam DIY

Who doesn't love the occasional DIY project? Fun, cheap, cheerful and the easiest way to add instant glam to standard pieces of furniture.

Today I want to share with you a little project I tasked my fiancé with a few weeks ago (also a subtle hint for him to get on with it)! This project is really easy and literally just involves spray painting this plain black shelving unit from IKEA in beautiful gold metallic paint.

I think a slick of gold paint adds sophistication to even the most simplest furniture and can really transform a space.

Here are a few pictures of the same IKEA shelving unit which has been transformed by other DIY'ers. Amazing!

The shelving unit costs $130 from IKEA and you can pick up gold spray paint for under $20 from a local hardware or craft store. Happy DIY'ing!

P.S I promise I will share photos of my unit after it has been painted and styled ... get cracking fiancé!
