Shelf Makeover.......

This is the After........

I bought this shelf at a g.sale -- have had it for a couple of years, intending to paint it. So this weekend, I finally did. I had planned on painting it white, but for some reason changed my mind to pink! It's in the dining room, which is pink and green.






I, of course, had fun putting all my pretties on it....







Here's a pic of it before.....





And after.......


I hope you all are enjoying a lovely long weekend!
Thanks for all the nice comments on my recent posts, especially the "book contest photos". You are so kind, and I appreciate you very much! :)

So cute! I just saw that little couple (middle shelf, right side) at an antique store in San Juan Baptista! Everything looks de-vine, Becca! I like the pink, too! Goes great with your pink roses! xo, Becky

Hi Becca! Thanks so much for visiting my blog - may I ask how you find it in the first place? I absolutely adore yours, can't imagine anything prettier than pink and green and roses! That's how I've decorated my little daughter's room - that shelf would SO fit in there too ;-). Take care! Lots of warm regards from Finland!

WOW! So beautiful. I llike the pink colour you have painted it in. Everything does not have to be white, these days.
I like the things you have displayed in it too.
Thank you for visiting my blog even if you can't read what I am writing.
Love Eva Agnes
