Thrifty Thursday: Re-painted shelves


This edition of Thrifty Thursday has been in the works for a while. In mid-November, the (old) television in our bedroom stopped working. We decided to remove the entertainment center it was housed in, and mount the tv on the wall.

I bought a small set of shelves to store and display some items at a thrift store. It cost $16.

I made some chalk paint and added some stencils to the shelves. Here is the finished display.

I really like how it turned out! What do you think?

Once I was driving along a city street and discovered a 1920s metal dish cabinet thrown out with the trash. It was one rusted mess. I took it home and with a little love, sand paper, and paint, it has become a treasure that I have enjoyed for the last5 or so years. Just poppin in to see what is up. http://morningtalkswithjohammers.blogspot.com

(I also like the clothesline photos)
