Spray paint your shelf

A new makeover for an old shelf

This idea shows you how to turn an ordinary wall shelf into a veritable showpiece. Any shelf – whether it’s an old one you’ve retrieved from the loft, or a bargain snapped up at a car boot sale – can be transformed into real eyecatcher with the help of edding permanent spray. We’ve chosen to combine different shades of pink with trendy champagne gold to create a feel-good colour scheme that adds a touch of elegance. Even total beginners can quickly conjure up impressive results with edding acrylic spray paint, especially as our Spray Basics section offers handy tips on how to achieve the perfect spraying technique. And if it doesn’t go right first time, simply spray it again! edding spray paints have outstanding properties – they cover exceptionally well, are durable and quick-drying.
