We found this wood shelf on one of our trips to Tennessee. It had a not so very good paint job in a not so flattering color.
We usually shy away from previously painted pieces but this one had such beautiful detail we just couldn’t pass it up.
With lots of prep work and sanding, we were able to get a nice smooth surface for our new paint. We painted the shelf in our signature white chalk paint using Behr Swiss Coffee.
We then sanded the entire piece for a smooth finish and gave the edges a light distress. We like the way the subtle distressing makes the details pop.
We then finished the piece by sealing it with hemp oil by Miss Mustard Seed.
This shelf is solid wood and measures 30″W x 26″H x 7″D
9″ between the top & middle shelf
10″ between the bottom & middle shelf
