For Vintage Inspiration Friday, I thought I'd share recent shelves from the flea market. In this post I showed you the first of these shelves purchased as part of a pair. I love the chippiness and lighter color of the other shelf in the pair. It was in two pieces - a bulky bottom and top piece that served as sort of a backsplash. I was particularly drawn to this smaller top piece which justified the entire bargain purchase of $20.
Here is the top piece placed on our dining room buffet:
I adore its' patina:
It is temporarily resting on two candlestick holders until I decide on a permanent location. I think the shelf helps to tone down the formality of the buffet:
A rustic basket and grain sack help to further balance the look:
Hmmm...now what to do with the bulky bottom piece of the shelf? I love it, but just haven't found an ideal place for it and it is heavy.
This is an enjoyable transition time between summer and fall. Possibilities await....
Have a terrific weekend!
