Little Wooden Shelf

Remember that small shelf I told you about? Well I finished it a while ago but hadn't posted a picture. Here it is-- it's no masterpiece but for a free shelf, it serves it's linen-y purpose just fine. {Who ever heard of a house with NO linen closet!?!} I roughed it up since it is an antique. I have an obsession with roughing things up-- especially my husband :} In a perfect world, all the towels and washcloths would be a pristine white. I've been wanting white towels for a while, but I can't justify getting more towels when the ones I have now are perfectly fine-- I can only do that with clothes!

Ooh! Very nice! What is the print of the paper lining the back?
The house we lived in before my parents moved to the house they are in now didn't have ANY closets!
And people were surprised we were moving-4 kids, 2 bedrooms, no closets. Why wouldn't we?
Can't wait to see your other projects!

Mrs. Bonnie, OH MY WORD-- NO CLOSETS. Wow, I'd definitely have to do some purging. Don't look to close at the paper. It's scrapbook paper and I just taped it up there very quickly. It definitely is not done precisely.
