This set of shelves have been on my to-do list for far too long! And is much needed in the studio to display some more goodies. So today I’m sharing how to upcycle some old shelves using stamps.
How To Upcycle Old Shelves Using Stamps
Should I use Ink or Paint When stamping on furniture?
Depending on what sort of look you’re after will determine if you should use ink or paint. Ink gives you more of a crisper image. Whereas paint gives more of a mottled look.
If you use paint be sure to add some clear glaze or extender to make sure the open time of the paint is longer and doesn’t dry too quickly.
