Me? On the Shelf??!! Never!

Right ladies!

Here is the promised painted shelf post.

Take one set of 'thrifted' shelves

'Rough-up' a little with some
sandpaper found in the shed!

Paint with 'dregs' of paint mixed together to
make a sort of pink colour.
(just realised how tanned I am :o)

Finally fix a 'free-sample' of Laura Ashley
wallpaper to the back,
and sit back
 and enjoy!

Not bad for £2!

Love C. x

OMG Claire, I gave a set of those shelves(mine`s didn`t have a back on them) away last weekend to my neighbour because I needed more space in my shed! I`m going to ask for them back (Indian Giver!). I LOVE what you did with yours (wanna sell them?lol).
