A Vintage Shelf

"There is a harmony in autumn,
and a luster in its sky, which
through summer is not heard or
seen..."
        ~Percy Bysshe Shelley

   Life is very busy at the moment! Every day I feel like there are a hundred projects to complete - and I usually only manage to get through three at most. :) September is suddenly on its last few days and October is looming. I have already started a myriad of Christmas projects for the shop and for my home! I am excited to share them with you in the future. For now I wanted to post some pictures of a recent addition to my work space. I happened upon a vintage wrought iron shelf during one of my antiquing trips. It was black originally and rather dusty but I could tell that it would be lovely with all of its curls and loops. I brought it home and after a thorough cleaning and sanding I painted it a warm cream colour and it sits above my desk. I am very pleased with how it looks! I hope everyone is enjoying Autumn!

  4. What a magnificent piece of shelving! It must've taken you some time to transform it from black to cream, and sanding all the curlicues, etc. I'm looking for something similar in design except a single shelf. Not giving up until I "stumble" upon my find. I know I will. Thanks for the peek into your latest gorgeous find. Take care.
