I thrifted this amazing shelf from Salvation Army for less than $30. I’m assuming its vintage based off of the tacky paint splatter finish that it had, which I thought I’d immediately change but it grew on me when I took it home. I’m kind of averse to adding wall shelves because I don’t want my small condo looking too cluttered. My intention was to buy/diy a bar cart but when I laid my eyes on this shelf my plans changed!
I sanded all the outside edges to get rid of as much of the texture from that paint splatter looking finish and gave it a good cleaning with a soapy damp cloth.
After two coats of primer I was satisfied with the results.
Side note: this color scheme would look stunning on a bar cart and goes well with most decor.
I wanted it to feel a little bit masculine. I want to add more neutral/masculine pieces to give the room balance. This shelf also acts and a little bit of a divider for the dinning room/kitchen and the living room. I plan to reinforce that with the paint when I get to it!
I added clear sticky dots onto the glass so that there is a barrier between the metal and the shelves.
