This new space gives an extra dimension to my studio which I can dedicate to calming and beautiful objects.
Saturday morning while flipping through the Merchandiser and sipping coffee, I saw an ad for a yard sale on the other side of town offering beads and art supplies, so I decided to check it out. The weather was gorgeous – even though it is the beginning of September, I could smell autumn in the air. The sort of weather that propels you outside. The sale was at a city house up on the porch and along the sidewalk. I first spotted two small, dirty, white milk glass vases. They had a retro geometric pattern that I digged. Then, I saw the unfinished shelf . I’ve been wanting to add a shelf to my studio for some time, spending hours on Pinterest contemplating the design and what I wanted to spend. Total asking price for the shelf and vases: $3.
The supports were removed with a screwdriver and then the base was given three coats with paint leftover from a previous home decor project.
I used a leveler to ensure that the shelf was straight while I marked the holes for the screws and later twisted them into place.
