Lil RED Shelf

No 'before' pictures of this one, but you can imagine.  It was just that early American maple wood that was so popular back in the...what??  70's maybe?  Anyway, it needed a little updating.  So, since this piece just shouts kitchen to me, I thought she should be red.  Well, isn't red popular in kitchens right now.  

I used my chalk paint recipe mentioned in this POST.  And, painted this lil piece just as I did the table in this POST.





Looks like the perfect place to stash your cookbooks...and recipe cards can go in the drawer below.  It's divided and just the right size for those cards.  Does anyone even use cookbooks or recipe cards anymore with all the recipes out there on the web??  Well, I still have a few that are special, so maybe someone else will too. I thought it turned out cute.  What cha think?

  2. Oh, THIS is where I saw the chalk paint recipe info! Thanks for sharing that again. We were discussing DIY chalk paint the other day and I knew I saw it somewhere, thanks! I especially like the drawers on the front of the little hutch.
