So in order for you to truly appreciate this cute little shelf, I should show you a before picture. The problem is, like I so often do, I got so excited to redo it that I forgot the before picture. Uggg... I hate when that happens!
I did however, take a picture of the pegs that I removed. It was this ugly, peachy color. There it was, sitting on a shelf at Salvation Army. I believe I paid around $6.00 for it. I loved all the cute little details and the shape. I knew that a piece like this could look cute just about anywhere!
I put several coats of cream colored paint on it. I should have spray painted it, but because I was out of the right color, and I had regular paint on hand, that's the route I went. It wasn't very easy getting the paint in all the little curves on the lower part.
After it was completely dry, I antiqued it. Once again I used Valspar Antiquing Glaze. I drilled holes where the pegs had been and put knobs that I already had on it. Wall...ah! Cute, huh? It sits above my computer on my desk.
I love it!
