POV {Shelves}

My shelf was really simple, but fun.  I went to the local thrift store and stumbled upon this beauty.


I knew that it had some potential and started thinking about where I wanted to use it and how.  I then decided that my front porch was going to be the perfect place to put it. 

First, I had to fix a couple of cracks in the wood with some wood filler.  I also tightened the screws.  Then I used Rustoleum's Warm Yellow spray paint to freshen it up and add some fun color to my front porch. 


I knew that I wanted to have some sort of flowers on it.  There is something about having flowers on your porch that is so inviting I decided.  So, I got to work with my little helper.  Using some plastic pots that I had saved from years before and forgotten about, I planted some fun bright flowers.


 The end result just makes me smile.  I feel like my porch is so much more inviting. 


I can't wait until I get my whole porch finished.  I have been trying to make my mind up about a couple of things and I think I have finally figured it out.  As soon as I finish it I will show you.  Promise.

Don't forget to link up your shelf projects.  You can find the linky right here on my blog.  It will be open through the weekend!
Pin It!

What a find! You picked the perfect color, Jonie. Those pots just pop against the pale yellow. Great job!

What a great find! And I was thinking you were gonna show us how you cut the wood and built it. But this is even BETTER, because I am not at the "building stuff" stage yet :) This is something even I could do. Linking up to your shelf party, and I am now a follower.
