We have been slowly but surely moving into our retirement home and I have been setting up my new craft room. I bought the Ikea Kallax units, 5x5 and 2 1x4 to hold my albums and paper (which are currently being shipped from the old house to the new, hence the empty shelves.) . The units are perfect storage for scrapping supplies, but soooo sterile. I prefer a shabby chic decor so painted the ends a rose chalk paint then used the Prima re-design transfers to decorate. Since the units are only 15" wide, I had to cut and paste the transfers. I used most of 2 sets for my unit.
The transfers are gorgeous. When I applied the chalk paint (on top of a very good base coat,) I used a brush which left a light pattern. When I applied the transfers, they enhanced the brush strokes giving the designs more texture and a distressed appearance...LOVE!!
This is what I see every time I walk into my craft room and I LOVE it!!!
