Not to Shabby

Ok, here is my attempt at painting "shabby chic". I found this shelf at Goodwill for 7.99. I love the size of this thing and could use several more. I think I could actually make one with all the scrap spindles and wood in my carriage barn. Anyway, I sanded, then the first coat, sand again then the second "dry brush" coat. After all these steps, Jamie, our "shabby Queen" at the Maple Street Mall, informed me to use 1,2,3, coat paint? and can eliminate all these steps!!!! Who knew? Well, at least now I know for the next time. This little shelf will fit anywhere and the best part is I can lift and move it myself because it is also very lightwieght.
