~ Shelves~


Hello everyone!  I hope your week has been going well.  Can you believe it’s almost Friday?  It seems like this week has just zoomed by.  It’s been a busy week of all work and no play but….I’m feeling better already because my taxes are finished! 
  Now it’s time to move on to more important things such as a finding a good bargain.  You agree? 
As I was browsing through my Ballard design catalog I came across this shelf
shelf from ballards
 
WS781_main
Bistro Shelf $89 - $159.
While visiting la bonne volonte, Goodwill, I spotted this little shelf.

The Ballard’s shelves are very nice but for $2.50 this one will work just fine.  I also think it will look much better once the room has been painted.  Now….what color?
Thanks for stopping by! Take care and be safe and I will see you again very soon.  xx00

Wonderful transformation. What a difference paint can make. I am the same way with shadow boxes. I do not care what kind of scene is in them, I buy them to redo with seashells in them for summer. ~~Sherry~~

A little colour change can make a big difference. I thought it was written there $250 which is so expensive but it is actually $2.50! That is far too cheap!! Haha.
Congrats on your taxes done, i'm still struggling...

Looks wonderful! There is so much you can do with all of those plastic gold decor items that are all over Goodwill. Nice job. Congrats on the taxes too.

Mary, I love your find and I love that you painted it black. I love little shelves like that to prop a painting on. The vignette you created is fabulous.
