Garage Sale Make Over

 Hello my dear friends,
 this little shelf was a garage sale find from last year and I finally gave it a new look. Sorry, forgot to take the before pic. It was a quick and easy project . The graphic of course is from Karen at the Graphics Fairy - thank you so much for all your wonderful images,Karen.

I really love my 1$ shelf. Thank you Julia,Rhonda and Michelle for bringing back the french in me:)
I might link this up to Brag Monday - always so much fun and inspiration. Find the link to Brag Monday on my side.
 Wishing you all a wonderful Summer day.
As always, thank you so much for stopping by and for all your lovely comments.

Hugs and love,

This is darling. Do link it up to Brag Monday! I am painting a footstool that I got for $2 at a garage sale. I may consider some graphics on that...though it would take a lot of seaer coats to be a working foot stool. Think it is time to head to the garage sales again!!!

Rhonda said...

You just made my day, Marie. Thank you for sharing your beautiful shelf. Adding the hanging crosses touched my heart.

Holly Loves Art said...

Wow! I really love your $1 shelf too! It's wonderful!!!

Your shelf was a bargain at $1 and you did a fabulous job decorating it. Such a pretty vignette with your altered bottles.

Marie I can't believe you purchased that for $1. You have turned it into a very useful and very french piece of furniture with just the right image on it too.
Will email you now too.
The weekend is here and hope it is a good one for you sweet friend,
Love and hugs,

I love how you transformed that shelf! Beautiful. And your gifts from Rhonda.....well I'm green right now!
I hope your having a great summer. Happy belated birthday! So many of us have celebrated these past few weeks. I need to write them all down for next year. What day is yours?

What a great idea! I have a shelf similar and didn't know what to do with it. Now I do. :)

Thanks for visiting me and commenting about my bookmarks. I love this shelf you redesigned. I always buy little shelves at yard sales, youve inspired me to art them up!

Hi Marie,
This piece has inspired me to get busy on a shelf I found at a thrift! I put it aside due to the ugly layers of brown paint :)
I will have to get started!

a shelf to love :)

Lynn Stevens said...

What a beautiful transformation Marie, perfect for displaying all your treasures!
