the "tell your own story" shelf

Your first quilt. A collection of scarves. Tatted doilies. Grandma's plates. Your infant's favorite blanket. Mom's smocked toddler dress made from feed sacks....
Tell your own story with your collection of favorite things on this sweet decorative shelf with hanging bar. Painted in Annie Sloan's Louis Blue chalk paint, lightly distressed and hand waxed. Solid wood.

The front and top of the shelf are embellished with the pages of an old book with text and illustrations from stories such as "At Grandma's Farm" and "Margery's Thoughts."

The hanging bar features 39" of hanging space for linens or quilts.

approximately 42"w x 7"h x 6"d
