A Simple Shelf

This shelf started as a cream shelf with some hunter green colored ivy stenciled all over it.  I painted it white, a couple coats were needed to cover that oh so 90's ivy.
 I then added my "signature" scrap wood to the back.  I went with more pastel colors to please my son who says I use the same colors all of the time.
When I showed him I had used different colors his response was,  "Those colors are different how?"  A shelf this size is perfect in so many places, where would you use it?

  3. What a classic boy response. lol. Love this little cutie shelf. I see book shelf. Used by the bed or at the chair side. It would be fun to mount it to the wall in the laundry room/mud room too.

  9. I noticed the Happy Hollister books too. My kids loved them growing up, and I think my daughter has obtained the entire set (or nearly so) for her own kiddos. The shelf is beautiful too!
