Gray and White

Hi Everyone
Happy Friday
Its official I am in
{Love}
This vintage wooden shelf was in our donate
box in the garage
It was originally very beautiful dark mahogany wood
My husband had it in his office for years
sitting in a cabinet just collecting dust 
We found it together at a flea market 
but he never found the right place to hang it
I always had my eye on the shelf 
 it has a beautiful timeless 
design and shape
Yesterday I grabbed it from the donation box 
bite the bullet and painted that beautiful dark mahogany wood shelf
~white~
Now it matches the corner hutch in our dining room


The shelf turned out better than anticipated
{Love}
how it looks positioned just below the vintage mirror and
it really pops against our gray painted walls

Adding vintage  treasures to a room
adds so much character
 When I told my Husband that
I was going to paint the mahogany  shelf he just chuckled
 He said he knew when we bought the shelf
it would probably  end up painted  white!!!
Grateful 
he likes how it turned out too
 linking for
Feathered Nest Friday
romantic saying for today
"Loving you is as easy as breathing and just as important"
