Repurposing a shelf

I got this fabulous little shelf Goodwill

I started off by whitewashing the whole shelf, I just watered down white paint. I used watered down paint on all the embellishments also. The images are from Whimsy. I cut some paper doilies in half to add to a couple of the shelves. I used prima papers to back the shelves. I just made this as frilly and girl as possible lol. I am sending this to a new friend, Cheryl in Canada.
