DIY Bookshelf Painting- Sherwin-Williams Latino

17 Comments



Hi everyone! I’m Vanessa of www.craftygemini.com and in this video we are going to paint a bookshelf with the help of the ColorSnap App by Sherwin-Williams. {Intro music} Well, here we have the project we are going to be painting. It’s a bookshelf that I finally decided to build myself because after going to a few shops I couldn’t find anything that really appealed to me or that was the size I wanted for my daughter’s room. She’s only two years old but she said it had to be purple. I decided to use the Sherwin-Williams ColorSnap App to select the perfect purple paint color. Before we start painting a new project we need to sand it down either with a sanding sponge or sandpaper making sure to go all around the project. Be sure to always wear a respirator to protect you from the dust. After you sand it take a damp towel that’s not too wet because we don’t want to wet the unfinished wood. And wipe off any excess dust. I’m using this Harmony Wall Primer by Sherwin-Williams. I’m going to open it up. And we’re going to paint on the primer just as if it were a paint color. {music and fast forward footage of painting primer on.} After you prime it you can lightly sand it again with a sanding sponge to smooth out any brush stroke marks. This will ensure a smooth finish that will be ready for the final paint color. Now to use the ColorSnap App, you can use a picture, fabric or something else. Here I have a little box. We’re going to take a picture of this with the ColorSnap App so it can pull the equivalent paint colors from the picture Let’s snap a picture. And here you can see the app has started pulling out all the paint colors. So, let’s see… this one is called Brave Purple. This purple is a little too dark, it’s called Forget-Me-Not. You can also click and drag the circle all around your image. And just let it go when you find a color you like. And if you already know the paint color you want to use the app also has a section here where you can explore all the paint colors Sherwin-Williams carries. Here is the paint I selected. It’s number 6982- African Violet by Sherwin-Williams. And I selected it from the Emerald line of paints in a semi-gloss finish. Semi-gloss is going to make it really simple to clean when the kids dirty it. I can just take a damp cloth and wipe it right down. {music & fast forward footage of opening painting.} After the first coat of paint, wait for it to dry completely. Then we go back with the sanding sponge again and lightly sand down any paint drips or residual brush strokes. This way I will end up with a smooth surface ready for the second and final coat of paint. {music & fast forward footage of final paint coat.} Here’s the finished bookshelf. I gave it two coats of paint with paint color #6982- African Violet. Now, I just wait for this coat to dry so I can take it to my daughter’s room. I think it turned out great. What do you think? I hope you enjoyed this tutorial on how to paint a bookshelf using the ColorSnap App by Sherwin-Williams to choose the perfect paint color. Thanks and I’ll see ya’! Bye!

    Por favor, podrías hacer un tutorial de como se confecciona una bolsa multiusos de esas que se cuelgan a las sillas de rueda y los andadores para viejitos? Es que tengo una vecina que necesita una, se que venden los patrones. Pero yo no los entiendo nunca, por eso veo tutoriales por YouTube y yo misma creo mis patrones o los descargo para hacer ese tipo de proyectos. Soy aficionada a las manualidades, la remodelación y el reciclaje como hiciste las sillitas altas con pintura y tela, me gusta mucho tu canal.
