because I'm a bad person...

When we sold our home, I inadvertently sold a shelf to the buyers who wanted a lot of the furnishings and decorations left in the home.  I had previously gifted a shelf that was hanging in my living room to my SIL. I wasn't thinking about that when selling the room decor.  I've been kicking myself ever since.  That's why I was pretty excited to find a similar shelf for 7 bones at a thrift store.


I painted it an antique white 

And made some really basic little birdie stencils.


Hopefully this will make up for my air-headed ways.  

Linking to Frugal Friday on The Shabby Nest.  Pop over and see Wendy. She is simply amazing. I'm sure all of her followers have some amazing projects as well.
