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.

Stencils:

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

Sorry, got distracted by that snazzy 'kitty clothesline' picture hanger to the right. :-)

I was distracted by that flat screen tv hanging on the wall.. ;)
Great job on the shelves.. they were so dark in that first photo I had no real idea what I was looking at.

(I also like the clothesline photos)

It looks terrific Rene! I like the different sized shelves and it certainly so much nicer now that you've refinished it.
