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.
