Retro Shelf Revamp

Retro Shelf Makeover with Country Chic Paint in Jiggity

Each year the church ladies hold a large garage sale 3 doors down from us. It's a total win/win for me. I can scope out the goods before the sale starts, then sneak over on my way to work in the morning! I lucked out when I found this retro shelf there! It was just sitting there, in all its retro glory, calling my name! This piece was definitely unique. The top was pressboard with a faux grain laminate top, which led me to assume that the whole thing was built that way.

Well, back in November, we were having some friends over before we headed out for a comedy night. Instead of tidying the house I painted that damn door. My intentions were to actually paint our exterior door, but then Mother Nature went all cray cray on me and it was too cold. So I had to satisfy my painting itch somehow. It actually gave me some time to think about whether or not I should get in touch with a service simi[...]

I've been going through a creative slump lately. It's the truth. Although most days my mind feels like it's going to explode with the ideas that are popping into it, my heart just hasn't been in it. My creative mojo has been on vacation I think. Does that ever happen to you? Sometimes life gets in the way and keeps you busier than you expected it to. All those ideas just sit, all the craft supplies, paints, and furniture - well, they wait. And then some days you glance at some random little bag of wood craft cubes and the Budweiser Red Light goes off in all i[...]
