shelves, after

Remember my $4 thrift store shelves before? If not, I'll remind you:


Ugly, no?

How about now? ...

We started by removing the back, then we washed and sanded everything. I bought the paint at Walmart. The shelves are Mediterranean Teal and the back is Jalapeno (though I've never seen a real jalapeno this color, it looks more like a banana pepper to me).

I love the arches and poles (columns? sticks? what would you call those?)

The paint really transformed it into a terrific display shelf. Great colors!
