Another Shelf?

I found this lovely shelf at the thrift store.
(Yes, it's upside down)
Do I need another shelf?
Nooooo
So with the help of hubby and a hammer,
to remove the shelf part,
I have a neat little architectural piece
to hang above a door.
(Some sanding & paint touch-up was required)

I totally agree with you on the lift thing...I do that all the time too & it makes a huge difference in displaying things.

Have you ever seen "The Breakup" with Jennifer Anniston? There is a piece of art that she sells and this reminds me of it. If you haven't seen it you should b/c it's a cute movie! Your so creative!

Valarie said...

That looks really really good!

melissa said...

Joy,
It looks perfect up there. I was going to say...you didn't have to pull out the paint for this one?? That would be amazing. No luck at my DT for the little labels. I'll have to check around a bit more. Thanks for the tip, though!

Another great idea. You'll have everyone looking at those thrift store shelves in a whole new light.
Now I'm wishing I bought an interesting one I saw last week at the thrift store. Just wasn't thinking fast enough that day.
Have a great day! :)

That is such a great idea! Your house looks amazing right now. I wish I had all of those decorations, but then I think of the space just to store them??! It does look great though.

Thank you for visiting my blog the other day for my Fall decor! I have to admit I love your blog! I've added it to my sidebar so everyone I know can see how cute your blog is! You have SUCH great ideas! I'm a "tweaker" too. My problem is I go on your blog and see how cute you do your decor and I want to change everything to make it more like yours :) ! Thanks for the inspiration!

Great idea! I bought another shelf but it still siets in the trunk of my car. I just can't let my hubby see I bought another shelf! Ha, ha. I'll wait til he goes on errands or something and sneak it in.
