But I realized the spindles were just screwed together and so it was a cinch to separate them from the shelves. They were also in great condition and I thought--why paint them? I could just paint the shelves and call it a day.
I won some samples of American Paint Company paint from a blog giveaway and one of the colors I had was National Forest.
I just slapped two coats of paint and then waxed it with the dark wax "glaze" technique. It is Annie Sloan dark wax mixed with paint thinner to give it a glaze like consistency so it is easy to move around on the paint. It gives so much dimension to the paint as it was so flat before I added it.
To finish up I just had to screw the spindles back on and I was done. It is officially the easiest makeover ever!
