Thrift Shop Find....

I found this "what-not" shelf
at a local thrift shop yesterday...
it was 10.00.

I like how architectural it is,
but not sure I wan't to keep it white.
should I comb paint it & distress it?
what color?
it will be hanging in my shop's office, and will be used to hold my little treasures...
hallowe'en stuff, primitive knick-knacks, pincushions, etc....
I'll think a little more on what I should do,
but I welcome any & all suggestions!

I'll post pics of the big 'finish' soon!!

in the meantime,
please visit
to see two more of my finished dolls!
Blessings from the Farm,

What a great find ! I actually like it white, so I wouldn't change it (white can be so under-rated:)

Hi Lori. It kinda depends on your wall color but I think black shows off little things nicely. It looks great whit, too. Neat find!

On yesterdays post...I sew with a Viking machine and have for many years...No oiling and no maintenance. She just keeps truckin.

Nice find and I think it looks nice as it is, already distressed. I think I might hit the thrifts this week, love finding treasures I can use for the house.
