A few months ago I decided to reorganize my “Office” which is really my arts and crafts room. There were huge piles of stuff everywhere, and it had basically become a junk room. As part of the clean-up process I discovered this shelf I had acquired at a thrift store. I LOOOVE thrift stores.
It was beat up, wobbly, and chipped, but I saw potential. I attempted to hammer extra nails into it to strengthen the structure. Unfortunately, I smashed my finger and split the wood. Hubby came to the rescue. He just hammered it back together, since there were nails already in it.
Proof I did at least some of the work myself:
The finished product:
Two coats of my favorite 1950’s turquoise blue, and it looks great!
My “Baby Animals” collection now has a home, next to my 1970’s embroidery, also salvaged from a thrift store. Sweet!
