Decorative Wall Shelf

Hey! I know, I know, it’s been about a week since my last post and I use to post at least four times a week… But finals, my ex-boss calling me in to do work for him (which is very much appreciated, who couldn’t use extra $$$) and more finals. Oh and did I mention my grams (the best Grams ever) is having a triple bypass  tomorrow? Yup, and she is in her mid 60’s, young!  So needless to say I am wound up tight… Everyone pray for a successful surgery please!


Onto my project, I got these gold shelves from my grams.


And ever since I had done my wall art with Veda's old Easter dress I knew this wall needed to be dressed up to compliment the picture. But this gold was wayyyyyy to bright. So I pulled out my fav thing, crackled spray paint!!! Does anyone use this anymore? I am and forever will be in love with it, I have an end table I used it on as well… So a quick and easy application of crackle spray paint later,



LOVEloveLOVElove! I pulled some accessories from around the house, the shelf with the cross still needs some work, but not bad for using what I had lying around! I also rubbed a bit of the antique bronze acrylic glaze on, it is not super noticeable, but it pulled in the browns from my picture frame a bit.

(Please excuse the bad pic, I literally just finished and it’s midnight)



SO I am in love, and I think they work well with my frame that I love, what do you think?

And do you know what is underneath these wall decorations??? Only my mothers day present, but that, will have to wait for another post because I am still tweaking it! (Am I the only one who asks for “project” related things for mothers day?)
