I have a fun little makeover to share with you today.
This shelf was purchased dusty and neglected for $5. It has a funky top shelf that I imagine held silverware at one time, but would not be very useful today:
So I wacked it out and replaced that piece with a regular shelf:
Then I gave it a wainscot backing and a coat of Annie Sloan’s Duck Egg Blue chalk paint…
I love this color.
Much better… now it’s functional again.
I’m really pleased with how it turned out.
I lined the drawers with pretty paper and added dainty little glass knobs.
A little ironstone to dress it up…
This piece was painted white, but had also been red as well as chartreuse green at one time. In some parts, you can see a tiny bit of red peeking through.
As always I’m so glad you stopped by! I hope you enjoyed this little before and after ! 🙂
If you like what you see, there are several ways to follow along!
I love to share at some of these great parties:
