New Shelf in Laundry Room





Hi Everyone,
If there are any of you out there that check my blog
on a regular basis, you know that I don't post that
often. I have a certain dilemma, and I've already
posted about it, I lost, yes lost, my Sony digital
camera. So, I'm digging deep from some older projects. I bought
this brown shelf at TJ Maxx for $7.oo. I was about to walk out
the door, giving up that I had not found anything that day,
(and usually I always find something at tj maxx), and I just so
happened to lean over to look at something on the bottom shelf of
the clearance aisle, and low and behold, I found this shelf. Of
course, I decided to paint it black, and put it in my laundry room. I sanded
the edges to give it more of that "rustic" look that I love. My mom found
the Mississippi trinket at a yard sale, and I found the Home sign at Cato's
clothing store on clearance for $7.oo. The other stuff I already had. It's kind of
thrown together,but nevertheless, it turned out cute, considering how
cheap it cost to do this project. I hope to have some newer posts soon. I'm
working on my husband to let me buy the $500 digital camera that I have
picked out, but we'll see! Have a great day!!

Hey Kelli,
You know that I think it looks great! The Mississippi basket looks great painted black with the HOME sign!

I couldn't see "the Mississippi trinket." I guess you really need that camera for a close-up shot.

The overall look is a good one.

This grouping looks great....almost too good for the laundry room where no one will see it!!! I know what you mean about being lost without a digital camera. Hope you get one soon.

The shelf turned out great. I wish good cameras did not cost so much. That is one place where you get what you pay for. Good luck and have a happy day...

I really like the detail on that shelf and painting it the way you did really brings it out. It looks great!
