Transformed Treasures Tuesday no 25

I’m happy to finally be showing you all Transformed treasures Tuesday no 25.  It’s been a while since I’ve actually finished up a project around here.  I found this cute shelf while out on my latest thrifting hunts.  I didn’t even get the chance to share it with you all.   In one of my thrift share reports before, I’ve already decided how to paint it and where it will go.  So I guess this was one of those finds that just fit right away.

I gave it a good wash.  Let it dry in the sun.  I then painted it with Krylon Gold spray paint outside on our picnic table.  Luckily the weather has been pretty mild for fall in the northeast so i was able to do this outside.  I always either use craft paper or newspaper if i have it.  To protect the area I’m painting on.  Another great trick I sometimes use if the piece is small enough is to put in a box for spray painting.


So I totally got it into my black bedroom because I knew I wanted it there.  I put it up first with two thumb tacks to step back and make sure I liked it there.  And a few minutes later when I stepped away to get my drill and screws.  I came back to it on the floor.  And the middle shelf knocked out of the shelf.  But you know what I liked it even better that way.  Yay.


I’m a huge fan of mixing metals so I thought the little drawers would really pop in silver.  What do you think?  I know I need to fill the slot where the second shelf was.  I’ll have to make a run to my local home depot for some wood filler.  And patch up the paint but I already know I’m loving this shelf.

    Silver and Gold, just in time for Christmas, so xmas decorations will look stunning in this box. I like your tip to spay in a box if the item is small enough.
