Vintage Scrolly Shelves
While visiting grandma in Loveland, CO we found this gorgeous 5-tiered shelf at the ARC. Who could pass up this beauty?! I typically have a $30 MAX budget on any one piece; this was my first “expensive” piece at $30. I had my kids pick this up so I could look at the bottom which was filled with spider webs and dead things. Because of this, they wanted me to leave it, but yah, NO — this shelf needed me as much as I needed it!
I spent a long time trying to decide what to do with this piece as it was clearly, already awesome. The dark wood is always pretty, but I decided that I wanted to lighten her up. Since she is so spectacular and curvy, I used Annie Sloan’s more expensive Antique White to finish. The backing needed to be replaced; I covered it with interesting fabric and love the final product! Hope you do too!
