Black and White Switched Shelf

So – I took the shelf down, spray painted it and put it back up. The shelf is made from pallet wood, so the boards are quite rough. The texture held the black paint adding additional shadows which I like! It still needed something though. It looked too aloof and didn’t tie into the microwave shelf so I decided to paint a black stencil border along the front.

Then I decided I needed to add the same border in the white to the microwave shelf.

Here it is all put together.

And the before and after…

White Shelf with stencil

I do think the shelves play nicer with the black and white stove now!

  1. wow – the stenciling on the black shelf is fantastic. really looks sharp. (It’s well done on the white one, but I’m not digging the white one, but that’s a matter of personal taste).
