A trip to my favorite thrift-store on 50% off day
led me to this little beauty.
I know it isn't that beautiful right now,
but with a little white paint...
I am hoping this shelf will help to restore order to
Miss Sarah's book collection.
At 50 % off it cost me $4.25!!
Did I tell you that it had a matching partner?
Couldn't seperate them, so they both traveled home with me that day :)
2 coats of white paint and I was smiling :)
(I used white trim paint left over from the steps)
I was looking at a decorating book and they showed a smaller version
of this shelf and used it for plates.
Called it a plate rack.
Ummmm....was I wrong to think it was for books?
why not try plates in it and see how it looks.
It didn't work very well. Only could fit one plate per shelf.
I do love these plates.
Tony bought them for our 2nd valentine's day together.
From the early 1900's. The dealer told us more,
but I forget the rest...I know the important stuff!
The bottom says J&C Bavaria..
Does anyone know what that means?
Back to my original plan.
Organization for Miss Sarah!!
I love that the kids love books,
but I don't love them all over the floor and bed and table...
Just like Miss Sarah :)
