So here the shelf is, All finished!
I didn't get to take a fancy photo, with books, vases and flowers, cos I was in a rush to get it in the study as we where having friends over for a BBQ and they where due any second.
But I'm pretty happy how it turned out!
So my next projects are,
Updating my Grandpa's Grandfather clock, I think a little paint will change it completely, and also show off the detail in the glass of the birds.
Turning a frame I got at the op shop into a trendy mirror with hints of damasked pattern coming through. This is going to be a first try so hopefully it turns out OK.
Fixing a little colonial wooden style coffee table I scored for $5.
Figuring out what to do with this box.
