I frequent this store, Japan Home Centre, which carry a lot of Japanese products. I tend to purchase those items which are pretty nifty. I usually find unique items there. This time I found some small wooden wall furniture and I decided to purchase one and give it some personal touch.
After purchasing, I stopped by at a bookstore nearby and looked for some paint I can use on it. As the selection was very limited, I decided to get a multi-purpose white paint. I was hoping to put some vintage vibe to it.
I needed a brush, screwdriver and white paint for this project. I needed to remove the the hooks at the back after that I painted away. I started with a thin layer but decided to keep layering.
Tip: Use a good brush. The brush I used is awful. It was the only one that was available at home and it was too late when it dawned on me that I should have invested in a good one. The bristles were too hard and as I was painting, it was destroying the layer I’ve made. Well experience is the best teacher and when you do something on a whim, you just learn along the way. ^_^’
After the paint has dried, I’ve put back the screws.
There are a lot of ways you can use this cute wall furniture. I’ve included some photos below of some ideas I had in mind.
Okay maybe it’s not vintage at all but I tried. haha. It wasn’t a neat job either but I enjoyed doing this.
Now all that’s left to do is hang this on the wall.
