A Thrifted Shelf!

Yay! I finally have a new post for everyone! I'm so excited to be back! Once again I want to say sorry to all for my absence.  Anyways, I have the cutest shelf to show you guys.  Where I live, we have the cutest thrift shop where all the proceeds are donated to the humane society, and the prices are a steal! I bought the cutest shelf for only $1! Life is good!

Now I know that with all of the craft blogs and Pinterest out there, it is no secret how to use some spray paint to refinish anything, but I really wanted to show everyone my finished product.  So without further adieu, here are a few items and steps I took to spruce up my shelf.

These are all the supplies I used to bring my shelf back to life.

The most important tool needed is a cold glass bottle of Cheerwine, or any other soda of your preference. (It was delicious!)

I spray painted it, (after I sanded it) a nice aqua shade of blue.  I'm in a very nautical, paradise mood lately!

My shelf was missing the hooks, so I bought some new ones real quick.  The nails are so tiny so be careful not to lose them!

Voila!  My shelf is all finished! I like that it isn't perfect.  It looks kind of distressed, just like my room right now.  I'm ashamed of how dirty I have been lately! No judging!

So that's it folks! Easy as can be! I challenge you all to find $1 finds and fix them up! They can have so much character. I'd love to see any pictures if you guys do the same! Glad to be back!
XOXO
Abby :)
