Today I bring you this little wooden shelf.
I found it during one of my treasure hunts out of town! Super cute but it needed an update.
The makeover came with time and layers and in the end I am so glad it did.
First the primer...
Then a red...
I wasn't sure where I wanted to go from there so I put it away...for a YEAR!!
Wow does it take anyone else that long to get inspiration for a piece?
Finally I had an idea and the perfect color for it, so here we go.
We're back in action.
I lightly distressed the drawers and then finished them with dark wax - here they are before the wax.
The body was covered in a powder blue and then also distressed and sealed with dark wax. I love the way all the gorgeous layers show through.
A hand painted star added that extra rustic charm.
Here is a before and after for you...
Until next time;
