I have found myself LOVING these mantel shelves that I am going to tell you about today. I have a couple of them on my walls at my house. I was tempted to keep this one but I don't think I need one in every room so it made it into our booth. I found this at a garage sale. The lady said someone had made it for her. It looks like they took a piece of molding and added a piece of wood to the top. Such an easy piece to re-create on your own! It was just perfect...besides a few coats of paint that it was crying for. So I decided to paint it black. I figure black could work perfectly in a lot of décor in houses. So here is the before pictures. Just so you can get an idea of how rough it looked without the paint.
As I said previously I thought black would be the best choice for this piece...I am sure a lot of other colors would have worked as well but this is the direction I went. I gave it a few coats and then sanded off some of the detail. I finished it off with some clear coating and called it good. I love the way it turned out. I am a little bit sad I didn't keep it for my own home. :) Have a great day!!
