I just realized that I’m not sure were I purchased this little wall shelf!
Most likely a garage sale because this is the sort of thing that is kind of putzy to makeover, so I must have gotten a really great deal on it. And then it sat in the ‘to-do’ pile for a long time because I didn’t want to deal with it.
But I had some leftover paint from the tropical kitchen island last weekend, so I decided to slap it on this.
It got really nicely chippy.
One of the tiny knobs was missing. I tried multiple different replacement knobs, most of which were too big for the scale of this piece. But I pulled these two out of my stash and thought they worked quite nicely.
I lined the drawers with some pretty scrapbook paper.
And then I filled it up with some of my favorite ironstone.
I’m hanging this on the wall, but you could also set this on a dresser or some other surface because it has a flat bottom suitable for that. These shelves are perfect for displaying a collection, but I wonder if people find them to be too ‘old school’.
What do you think? Lame old fashioned, or yummy vintage? What would you display?
