UpCycled Stairs

We had a lot of interest in the beautiful, aged, grey shelves we currently have in the shop. I thought they deserved even more attention.  They actually were made by a very handy friend of ours.  He took his neighbors old steps that were being discarded, and recycled them into a beautiful shelving unit.  We just adore them.  The color is amazing, and they are deep enough to hold many a collection!

Recycling at it's best!  Look at how deep the shelves are.  You could fill this chalk full of a collection.  I would fill it with all my globes, or maybe all of my white and cream vases.  What would you fill it with?

Here's a close up of one of Anne's beautiful banners.  The colors go perfect with this shelf.

We are off again to another auction tomorrow, in search of more treasures.   

We had such a blast visiting with all of you this weekend at the shop.  Thanks for stopping by!  We will be open again next weekend, January 19,20,21, and again on January 26,27,28.  Have a great weekend everybody!
