Sometime over the summer E and I went to the Pell City thrift store. I bought several goodies and stumbled across a beautiful shelf! I call it a shelf even though I know it once had sliding glass - the glass in mine did not survive 50+ years. It was in great shape - okay, as great of shape that you can expect from a thrift store. There was a bubbled up area, but it was on the shelf - I wanted this for books so I did not care! At SEVEN DOLLARS, yes seven glorious dollars, it came home with me. I failed to consider that we were in E's car, which does not have as big of a backseat as my car does. Oh well. We made it fit!
|Because the shelf was not wood, I primed it with 2 different spray paint primers. I couldn't tell a difference. Amateur.|
|I picked 2 paint chips that I liked of blues that were in a painting that will be prominently in my room. This first one I thought was the winner. Not so much. I finally decided it was wayyyy too bright.|
|The after! I was super paranoid of running out of paint, so I used leftover light yellow for the inside. Used a brassy-gold for the feet and that is my favorite part!|
