pink painted shelf edges
photo: freunde von freunden

Painting the edge of a shelf an unexpected color is such a simple way to put some surprise into a closet…it reminds us of the orange painted door edges and hinges we featured a while back. (We’re thinking that edging the shelf with a beautiful tape would do too.) It’s easy to do, and give a big bang for the buck (time/money).

  1. This is a great idea! I love the POP of color. I just had an idea for a variation on this: chalkboard paint! If your shelves are wide enough you could paint the edges with chalkboard paint and use it for organization in a pantry, closet, etc! That way, if you you rearrange your closet or cabinets you just erase the previous “label” and write in the new one! Can you tell I just bought some chalkboard paint and am just dying to use it?

  2. Really great idea. We didn’t think of chalkboard paint. Send us a photo!!!!!
