Hello everyone!! My Thanksgiving vacation has officially started, woohoo!! I spent the day yesterday playing in my craft studio and I'll be sharing what I made soon.
But I have a fun thrift shop flip makeover to share today!
In my last Treasure Trove Tuesday post one of the thrifted treasures I shared was this dated 1970's plastic display shelf. I knew I could make it cute and at $4.99 I could hardly pass it up!
The whole thing is made of molded plastic and the back has a mirror. I loved all the curlicues and swirly designs on the top and bottom but I didn't care for the center section that looks kind of like a frame.
I used my jig saw to cut that section out. Don't worry, I'm saving it for some other project 😉
I'm going to use this shelf to display my collections of Gurley and Tavern candles. I wanted to be able to have a seasonal background that I could change out with the seasons or holidays. I found this large Christmas gift bag at Target and thought it would be perfect for a winter background.
I cut one of the sides of the bag the same size as the mirror backing and just taped it onto the mirror.
The cabinet and shelves got a couple of coats of Krylon Chalky Finish Spray Paint in Classic White and I added the new snowfall backdrop and voila, a cute display shelf!
It is hanging on a small little sliver of wall in my dining room...
... ready to display some cute Christmas Gurley candles. I found the cutest nativity scene recently at a cute little vintage shop on Etsy called A Better Time, I can't wait to display it in here!
I found the Joy sign in the ornaments at Target.
Of course I'll share once I get my cute Gurley Christmas scene all set up. Check out my Gurley and Tavern Candles Collectibles Guide to learn more about these sweet little candles.
