DIY Gold Etageres


I absolutely love gold etageres but unfortunately they are usually very expensive, like this beautiful shelf. Since I couldn’t find a cheap version for my new studio apartment I decided to spray paint metal shelves myself. I found this great DIY on Pinterest. These metal Ikea Vittsjo bookshelves only cost $40 each, or you can buy the larger one for $70.


Buy Gold or Brass Spray Paint. I used Rust-Oleum Metallic Gold, which I just found at my local hardware store. I needed one full bottle of paint per shelf  - you’ll need to do 2 coats of paint.

** Make sure to remove glass shelves before painting



And Voila, my shelves came out beautiful. I’m using them to frame my living room and they are perfect for holding knick knacks, books, DVDs, etc.
