Step 1 – Give your bookshelf a really good clean with TSP. Give a light scuff sand to remove any lumps and bumps and give a nice smooth canvas to paint. Give the outside, and shelves 2 coats of Little Lamb using your brush, letting each coat dry in between.

Almost there!

Step 4 –  Carefully pick up your stamp and apply it to the back of the shelf. You can also use the transfer film if you are a little nervous doing it freehand. Gently rub your fingers over the design and pull away. Repeat using different stamps from the stamp set until you are happy.

HANDY HINT: Always have one hand on the stamp to avoid shifting the stamp and blurring the design.
