Glass Shelf Re-do

Julia blogs at Cuckoo 4 Design.  She had a corner of her shelf that needed something…but she couldn’t figure out what that something was until she came across this glass shelf at an auction.  I probably would have passed this one up, but Julia didn’t–she’s got a great imagination!

At home, Julia figured out how to tone down the bright, brassy finish and frosted the shelves.  The result is a shelf that looks sophisticated and very high-end.  It also looks amazing in Julia’s family room.  It’s an unbelievable transformation.
