I went on the hunt for display shelves and found the short one at The Bins. I wasn't having any luck finding a bigger one so I stopped at Division Street Antiques and told Nina what I was looking for. She immediately said she had one in the U-Haul that they hadn't unloaded yet. Joe jumped in and pulled it out far enough for me to see and I said SOLD! It is homemade and kind of cobbled together and perfectly funky.
My vision is a green frame, white interior and the shelves and back covered in a couple different kinds of black and white paper that I found. When I said I was going to paint it The Husband said maybe you should use "that water paint". Huh? What? I am pretty sure he is talking about milk paint or chalk paint but where that came from, I don't have a clue. I must talk in my sleep.
I did make one attempt to find chalk paint but my nearest Michael's doesn't carry it and I don't have time to chase around looking for it so I fell back on my typical "use what you have". I wanted the frame to be Grandma Green, which is what I call nearly every shade of light green. I dumped together every single bottle of light green craft paint in my stash and made Grandma Goop.
Back to the projects now. I hope you are all having a great weekend!
