Hmmm...I think I'll paint it green!

I love this shelf! It was an ugly, dirty, white color with no character to it. I decided to paint it this really cool shabby chic green...oh dear, I was going to tell you the color of the paint but I already trashed it. It's a new spray paint from Wal-Mart. If I can spray it, I will! It's so quick and easy! After I painted it, I antiqued it by rubbing on a stain. BINGO!! Looks like it's been that color for years, and so shabby chic.

Hello! The shelf looks great! I love painting all the furniture around my house! Wishing you a great weekend! Vanessa

Love the paint effects Verna - all looks great and I just wish your shop was nearby then Vanessa and I could come visit! We love shabby - are planning a treasure hunt together tomorrow!

Hugs - Mary.

P.S. Are you using the new Krylon in the friendly spray can?

Just noticed - that new easy spray can is Rustoleum, not Krylon! Can turn it every which way, and has what looks likes a much more comfy spray button - about time, those original ones really numb one's fingers in no time.
