Friday's Find: Vintage Kiddie Chair Recreated as Wall Shelf!

Thank God it's thrifty Friday Friends! Today I'm sharing a recent yard sale find that I've repurposed as a shelf...

Remember this little guy? I knew as soon as I saw him he would be getting a transformation. I have always loved the idea of a chair as a shelf so this little miniature seemed just right for the task!

I know, I know...I always use this color--but it's my absolute favorite!

All it took was one coat each of Americana Decor chalky finish and wax. I still had some left from my last chalk paint project.

For the shelf vignette, I added a garden hydrangea to my thrifted hankieoil can, and compact. Even the vintage door knob is a previous yard sale find!
