DIY Bathroom Shelf Make-over

This DIY etagere make-over is part of my upcoming bathroom make-over.  Let's just say that I painted a silver stripe somewhere in the room... and I love it!  If you are in the mood, you can check out my Master Bathroom Make-over now.  So sorry to make you wait :)

This is the before picture.  Lame-o.  
First, I spray painted the etagere Gloss White with a nice paint and primer in one.

 I bought two planks of wood shelving at the hardware store and cut it to fit.  This is not fun.  My saw wouldn't fit wood this wide so I had to cut it by hand.

 I mixed a dark stain with a light weathered stain.  I was hoping the light weathered stain would be what I wanted but it was too light.  Luckily I had some of the stain from my Trunk Coffee Table left over.

I just lay the wood shelves over the existing shelves.  Easy.

This is the finished product.  Now I have cute bathroom shelving that look more expensive and substantial... 
and I didn't have to spend 700 bucks!
