French Shabby Shelf Project

I'm getting ready for a show this Saturday, so I've been working like a madwomen to get things done. Yesterday McKale and I took a break and headed out to a couple thrift stores. I found this awesome scrolly shelf. Now of course I forgot to take before pictures...that's how I roll. This thing was a really ugly orange color. I knew that I could transform this piece and make it one of a kind. So yesterday between kids and youth group...this is what I did! I love the look. I used old book pages on the back part of the shelf. I'm thinking it's very french shabby chic! Of course I want to keep this one, but with no room in my house-off to the sale it goes! What do you think? I love it so much. It is amazing what you can do with a little imagination and elbow grease!
PS...go out and buy the new Flea Market magazine...I got my copy at Walgreen's. It is awesome! I am so in love with my is my favorite magazine ever made!


  1. The shelf is very cute ~ I LOVE it. wonderful job
    PS I keep looking for the fleamarket mag and haven't seen it yet ~ can't wait!

  2. Super cute!! I'm sure it will sell quickly! I would want to keep it, too!

  3. I ADORE that scrolly shelf! Are you sure you can't find any room for it???? I certainly could and there ain't much bare wall left in my home!
