    This is brilliant. It’s like that movie, Victor/Victoria.

    This is an inexpensive shelving thing disguised as an expensive shelving thing that, in turn, is industrial waste/chic.

    I love the use of label holders and the smudged number on the side.

    Hi Maya,

    so did you actually only sand down the original black coat and got this look or does the wooden look come from the paint you applied?
    thx for your answer

    LOVE IT!

    but what paint did you apply???

  5. Joe Mahoney says:

    Hi Maya,

    I am also very curious if you sanded down the entire thing to the wood (how long did that take!?) and what kind of paint you used. Your response will be really helpful!
