this shelf........

I knew WHAT I wanted, but when I went to Hobby Lobby, they didn't have exactly what I wanted. I knew the approximate length that would work, and I knew the look I wanted. All they had was RED and black......the red was what I wanted only in a beige or off white......SO, ok you can see and already know what I decided to do.......a red shelf CAN be a cream colored shelf, can it not??? So since they were half off (gotta love Hobby Lobby sales), I bought it and a trusty can of antique white spray paint. No primer was used....just several coats of cream colored paint. Then the Rub n Buff that has become our best friend was employed and applied to those lovely embossed areas and VOILA!!! I LOVE my new shelf, don't you????
