I bought this "bad boy" at a community-wide yard sale last summer. I call it a pie shelf. I really don't know if it is considered a pie shelf? I think it was made to look like one. It's not a vintage piece, though.
It was ten dollars. I talked them down. ;)
The fact that it takes up mostly vertical space is a big plus in my book. 'Cause it gets a little crowded around here at times.
Some pale green paint...it went on right over the blue.
Distressing with an electric palm sander gave it this effect:
I yanked off the vinyl "tiles" that screamed "COUNTRY".
|See what I mean?|
Some real ceramic tiles went in to replace them. The tiles were a roadside freebie. Nice Score.
Then some OXO stickers, for a little bit of hugging and kissing. These will come off after Valentines Day and be replaced with something more permanent. I think. I know you probably didn't hear a word I wrote...you are too busy looking at that quadruple chocolate loaf cake (recipe by Nigella Lawson). It is to-die-for delicious! You can find the recipe here. I think I may be a chocolate addict.
The knobs went back on...only until I can find the perfect replacements. We're on a spending freeze.
A few of my favorite accessories have been added:
|Pale green mixing bowl ~ LOVE! Thrifted|
Ceramic Cake Stand. From Santa 2010
Chocolate Cake Plate (What can I say?)
|Our new "honey" pot in white ceramics. Thrifted|
White Heart Cutout Bowl. Thrifted
|Check out that fancy bottle. That's a lucky find. I made a couple of them into lamps. You can see them here.|
