The simple pleasures of home shine brighter
when the spirit of God intertwines our hearts
with His gentle Joy.

Downsizing Shelf Space. . .

Back "in the day" when Studio One 
was my Handmade Cards with a Vintage Flair
homebased business, I needed huge amounts of display space.



"Mr. Ed" made this display shelf to measure
8 feet long X 14 inches wide




A great space for my Seasonal display accessories,
this shelf is the entire length of the area 
along the North Wall in Studio One!



As seen above, 
it had become an obstruction of the vertical space in the room!






















Now that the shelf has been removed 
you can actually see its enormous size!


Updating the shelf is a job for "Mr. Ed"!!!



Once the final decision to the new size was determined,
new ornate brackets were purchased at Roadhouse Antiques!



 "Mr. Ed" applied two coats of the Sherwin~Williams  
SW 6071 Popular Gray to the Glacier White paneling. . .



and the new downsized shelf!!!



Downsizing took the 8 feet X 14 inch shelf
to a more suitable displaying shelf of 6 feet X 12 inches.




Once an obstruction, this trimmed, streamlined shelf 
has now become a graceful display space 
in the continuation of updating Studio One.

Looks great...love the shelf, Pat. Weirdest thing, got a quick blizzard last night between 9:30-9:45, snowing and blowing, enough to cover the ground. It has all melted with the warm temps!

I guess it just goes to show you that bigger is not necessarily better. It looks wonderful in its' new size!

What an amazing shelf my friend! Mr. Ed is a real treasure handy man, I am so impressed! You always display it with such charm and beauty, it's a real great piece you have. Thanks for your sweet visit honey, and yeah, I adore the yellow bowl, it reminded me of the ones mother used to have in the 60's.. to mix her pancake batter for us kids breakfast, right? Have a good week.
