Curvy Painted Shelves

Hi friends!

I have a question for you:

What comes to mind when you hear the word “CURVY”?

I usually think of girls.  Curvy is kind of a girly word.

Or jeans.  A curvy fit means a small waist and girly hips.

They don’t fit me.  I need the fit for the post four kids waist and the I eat too much ice cream hips.

When I asked the engineer what came to his mind when I said the word curvy, he said geometry.

Really?

Anywhoo…what do you think of CURVY shelves?  Curvy painted shelves?

A few weeks ago I found some curvy shelves.

You would have bought them too, right?  So cute and curvy.

I painted them my favorite color, Maison Blanche in Oyster, and distressed just a little with a rag dipped in a vinegar and water mixture.

I can’t seem to take any photos inside the house right now, it’s just too dark.  The family acts a little skittish when they see me coming with the camera, I guess I’ve asked for help carrying furniture outside one too many times.

I’m using a little antiquing wax on this piece, but that part isn’t quite done.  (I’m nothin’ if I ain’t honest…)

This piece is the very start of a collection that I will be selling at a few vintage sales this late summer and fall.  I am so excited.

  1. Hi, Kimm ~ I’m visiting from the Something to Talk About Link Party. I love the comparison between your thinking and your engineer-husband’s! I also love these shelves! They remind me of the ones my parents had when I was a kid, but they were an ugly, dark brown. I like the white SO much better! It’s amazing what paint can do, isn’t it? This post gets me excited to makeover some furniture! :0) Thanks for sharing and have a great day!
