Before and after: corner shelf

Posted by on Mar 9, 2010 in craft, photo | 3 comments

This is the corner shelf I’ve been looking for for ages. It was at the antiques store in town, out front and marked down from $49 to $15. My sister and daughter both mocked me but I picked it up anyway.

Before #1

I cleaned it then spraypainted it white (I will never spraypaint anything again, it took forever and several days later, my wrist is still weak and achy.) and now it is cute as anything and everyone is jealous.

After #1

I haven’t done anything like this in a very long time, but now I want to paint every bit of wood in the house.

    Well done! My sister laughs at me all the time when I have a cool idea. Then when I’m finished, the look on my sister’s face is priceless.
