Simple little shelf redo and a few thrift store finds

From this...

To this

It was painted a very pretty soft yellow but grungy and the color wouldn't fit with my decor so  I painted it Table Linen by Behr. I didn't want to shabby it this time.
I cut pieces of burlap to fit inside the back wall and used double sided tape to adhere the burlap, so far it's staying put!

I found this sweet little pitcher for $2 at Goodwill the other day, it's just the sweetest little thing and it was worth the trip just for that alone!

I also found this chair for a steal at a yard sale a few weeks ago, it's sits just below the shelf.
I love the curved top and the spindles.

And two more Goodwill finds,
a vintage bowl that looks like it's Texasware but says Made in USA on the bottom,
it's that thick plastic like Melmac with the swirls in it, in great condition for $3

And 2 little cups that remind me of McCoy. The have the similar markings and a number which I haven't looked up yet. I imagine they came with saucers at one time. $2 each.

Thanks for stopping!

Love the shelf and the color you painted it is perfect! I am in love with that adorable little pitcher... the colors are beautiful! The burlap on the back was a great idea and I love your vignettes...both in the shelf and on the chair!

Blessings, Vicky
