A Shelf painted for the better

I found this wonderful shelf that is solid cherry and stamped with the Butler name. It was great the way it was but looked a little dated for me. So I sanded it down.

I found a real pretty blue color to paint over it. I didn't change out the knobs because they were not screwed in and I thought the wooden pegs were cute.

I distressed it and left the drawer as is. I just added a little stain to it all.

Wish I could hang it and decorate but it is going to the store so I will have to do it there! I love to take something and give it new life! This piece needed a lighter look. Don't you think so?
I am on my way for a day trip today. I will blog about it soon. It is very exciting!

Enjoy your day!
