Roadside Rescue...The Little Shelf That Could...

Hello There! So, since I've not posted too many projects in a while, I'll give you one small do-over just to keep you smiling!  I'm hoping to do Loft/Craft Room/Little Monsters' Art Studio this week, and give you some previews on what is new and in the works!  This project was FREE!  My dad found this little shelf by the side of the road on trash day.  It wasn't bad...I mean, after all, It was FREE.  So my dad, being the most amazing man that he is, picked it up and brought him over.  Here's a before...


And some quick afters.... I wanted to use my ASCP, but wanted brighter colors to show up underneath when I sanded it....so I went to the trusty ol' acrylic craft paint...worked like a charm!











(And, no-I do not know what these pegs are for!!)



Here's a during....since the little hearts are a little dated for my liking....I cut cardboard pieces to put over them, and I painted them with Chalkboard spray paint!  Yes, the same spray paint I used here...gives it endless possibilities!  






To the eye, on the side of the road, one might say...one of the hooks is broken, and the little hearts are kind of "homely"...but to my Dad's eye, it said- "I bet she can create SOMETHING with this"....I can't believe someone would throw that away"!  He just gets me, what can I say?!?!
