Something I love to do, call me crazy is score the internet for deals. 95% of the time I cannot purchase anything, but I like to keep these little deals in the back of my pocket for a rainy day. I completed my first e-design a few weeks ago for a client and with some of the money she paid me, I went and purchased this chippy wall shelf. I originally had totally different plans for it, but it was way too pretty not to hang up immediately.
See, I love anything beat up. I love anything that appears to have a story. This piece, is brand spanking new and has no history, other than traveling from Sarasota, Florida. But the manufactures did an amazing job of making it look authentically beat up.
At the bottom of this post I’ll list different chippy shelves you can purchase as I believe this one is out of stock.
I actually left it empty for a while because I had no idea what to style it with. On the right side of this shelf, I have a huge gallery wall, so I didn’t want it to look too busy.
I finally just grabbed three vintage books that I had on my dresser, my little bird & a empty picture frame that matches the colouring of the shelf – and wallah! Not busy at all, but not empty.
One of my favourite things about this shelf is the detail of it. I love how beat up it is and it adds so much character in my new home. I often find new homes are hard to decorate as they have no character at all.
Look how cute my pew looks in the background!
