Happy Monday! ;-)
Well, I'd actually be closer to channeling my inner Mamie Jane if I actually took before pictures. Somehow I nearly always forget. I'm anxious to get rollin' and dive right in.
Now, have you ever met Jane over at Mamie Jane's? I'll just bet you have. I am always amazed by the ideas she sees in thing most of us would zip right on by. I LOVE it and I always leave inspired. I know she'd have probably come up with something REALLY creative with this little shelf-ie thingy.
This little do-hickey was white, YUKKY, CHEAP and made to go the other way around, but it was only five dollars, so well worth a little elbow grease. It had a towel rod where I've now made a little spot for display and the cubbies were actually filled with drawers......and the little doors were the other way around. After lots of sanding, painting and waxing it's a spot to hide my glasses and the remotes. I tried to round the corners just a smidge so it wouldn't have that new-ish look. I re-did the drawers too, but I really like it better without. I toyed with the idea of just having one, open slightly, with a little plant in it, but chose this way instead.... maybe I'll switch it around from time to time.
I had planned to paint it with my new old white Annie Sloan Chalk paint, but, after the dining room cabinet dilemma decided I didn't want it to look like every single thing had been painted either cream or black.........this is a color mixed up with some paints I had around and a bit of craft paint. Doesn't it look like 40's green? Yeah, well, it was a LOT brighter......bordering on neon, so I whipped out the brown shoe polish and gave it a little waxy love. What the heck, I'm tickled with it......a little bit of paint and work can do a lot for a bit of trash, can't it?
Have a great week!
I'll be prepping for Thanksgiving and listening to Christmas music this week.
