I picked up a little corner shelf unit at a car boot sale for a bargain £1 and thought it would be great to paint up! I will be able to take it along if I do a craft fair as it is small enough to sit on a table corner nicely! I sanded it down and painted the spindles in a chalky paint and then sanded it again and then waxed it to get a smooth finish. For the shelves I just sanded them down and got rid of a few minor water marks and then waxed it and left it natural. I am really pleased with it - here is a before and after photo!
I made the frame in the photo also - well I tarted up a plain old wooden frame! I made a lovely puffy, satin flower and a little bit of bunting to decorate it after I had painted and waxed it. I also distressed it alittle to give it a vintage look.
