I am happy with the result. All in all it was 3 coats of paint in most areas. I distressed it with a really gritty sand paper here and there and then waxed with paste wax. It is in my etsy shop ...Shabby Cottage Chic here
Yesterday when I was on the way to work I was lucky enough to have time to stop at a neighborhood rummage sale.
I found so many great items. If course I love the chippy white paint on this corner shelf, but I also fell hard for some mushrooms.
When I was a new bride in 1972 my kitchen was all orange and brown and mushrooms were popping out all over the place. Now it is vintage.
This collection of thread was begging to go home with me.
I love community tag sales.
Since the white and blue shelf was last weeks finished project I think I will also show the last plate of corned beef and cabbage I will ever cook.
It looks so yummy, but the salt and the spices and the way we had to air out the house for 2 DAYS!!!! Not doing this again. I will celebrate St. Patrick's Day with green beer next year.
