My newly painted wall cabinet/shelf & couple of xmas stockings

Good morning ladies! Well, here she is, my newly painted cabinet/shelf that I bought at Goodwill last week Thursday...sorry there aren't any before pics; it used to be a weird purple color! But look at her now!! Isn't she great! I painted it my favorite Linen White. This is what I have displayed in it for now, I'm still kinda playing around with what plates I want to display in it.




I love how it has the beadboard for the back, gives it a nice cottage feel, don't ya think :)



It isn't very deep, only 3 1/2", but just right for dispaying some pretty plates in...I had hubby put plate grooves in it for me.



Besides painting, I've also been working on some pretty new Christmas Stockings for my Etsy shoppe, and they have been selling like hotcakes! This one below I just listed this morning, and she is sold already to a really sweet lady who's purchased several from me....Thank you Miss C!!



This lovely stocking is still available if you are interested...love the pretty Vintage Linen chosen for it with the pink embroidery and appliqued pink and yellow roses...



Well, that's all for now....I'm off to do some more sewing and hopefully finish painting the cute little mini 6 drawer cabinet I got for my sewing room, which again, I found at Goodwill :)

Wishing you a wonderful day, and rest of your week ladies!! Warmest hugs, Brenda

The shelf is beautiful, Brenda. You did a fabulous job...but then, you always do. Can't wait to see the makeover of the mini cabinet.

Your stockings are beautiful too. You do such lovely work.

By the way, how is football season going? I don't think you've updated us in awhile...if you have, I missed that post.

Blessings and hugs,
