Grandma’s Shelf Gets Glam

Meet Holly, from McCall Manor, who asks a question many of us are probably familiar with: “You know all of those times when you scour the internet looking for a piece of furniture that has the EXACT dimensions that you need for a space and when you can’t find it online you look in your garage and realize that a piece you had been using to hold dirty garden shoes is actually perfect?”

Well, that old garden shoe shelf once belonged in the home of her husband’s grandmother, Mam.  And as of today it belongs in Holly’s office.  Since it was the first object that would be seen as anyone walked into the room, Holly decided to pull out all the stops for this makeover.  She had her carpenter husband make a few repairs, then painted it with CeCe Caldwell’s Vermont Slate with dark wax.  For the back of the shelf, she used Pure White from Annie Sloan Chalk Paint, then applied shiny gold vinyl confetti dots that she cut out with her craft cutting machine.  It’s a big update that makes Holly happy everytime she sees it.
