The shelf was beautiful to begin with but in pretty bad shape.

I paint in the middle of my kitchen... 

Does anyone else do this?

Drives my family crazy but the kitchen has the best lighting.

A coat of Miss Mustard Seed Milk Paint in Kitchen Scale

created a vintage chippy look that was perfect for this old piece.

looking gorgeous well into the next century!
