This re-purposed antique drawer front shelf was another item I brought home from my mom's apartment. (A few weeks ago she moved into a much smaller assisted living apartment, and I am downsizing her belongings)
I like this shelf, but to be completely honest, I listed it on a FB group to sell for $25. When it didn't sell the first couple of days, I deleted it from the selling group and decided to give it a makeover.
The antique drawer front is indeed beautiful, with it's curved front and beautiful grain, so my first thought was just to paint the primitive country gold shelf on top.
After painting the shelf, I just didn't like the contrast. The gold shelf seemed to blend much better with the gold tones in the wood grain.
I really have no business dragging more stuff home this week.
I am still very busy cleaning out my mom's apartment. I have until the end of August, but it is making me anxious. I have at least 4 pieces of mom's furniture that I plan to makeover. (More on that later)
When I saw a moving sale in the local newspaper for my collecting/church friends, I had to attend.
I remember these cement pumpkins on sale on a local FB group two years ago. They were $25. This one is a little faded out but only $1. With fall right around the corner, I bought it! I couldn't make one for $1.
