Nifty Thrifty Tuesday No.95

Welcome to the first NIFTY THRIFTY TUESDAY in 2012...so let's see what we all have to share in this new year.  I will be sharing this little Ballard's Backroom shelf that I have had for years that I did a makeover on yesterday. I wanted to change out the shelf that was in this bathroom at my beach condo, so I decided that I would do a makeover with this oldie but goodie. Love how it turned out...even though I was up to 1:30 last night finishing it...oh well it was worth it. Okay now it's time to see what y'all have to share.
                                  Thanks for coming to
                                   my party...hope you
                                     have a good time,

                                       The new look!!!
                                   This is how it started out.
                              Love me some beadboard...don't you?
                                Annie Sloan Chalk Paint..Coco
                                  is one of my favorite colors!

                   If you have not entered the Annie Sloan
                   Chalk Paint Giveaway here at Coastal
                   Charm...click HERE...to enter before
                            it ends on the 5th.

                           Come back later this week to see the
                           rest of the makeover here in this room.
