DIY Shelf Project

Here is my latest project!
It's a really cute shelf but needs some love.
The sides are so pretty, it has an art nouveau and art deco look combined. It's about 21" wide and 22½" tall.
Here is the before...
... and after!
It looks much more chic and feels a lot lighter and fresher.
My small hobnail pieces fit perfectly.
Although different shades of white, the magazine basket I painted last year matches really nicely!

I think the shelf and magazine basket are post-war era, because I found some magazine baskets with similar lines in the Sears Roebuck catalog from Spring 1946. My basket is about 14½" wide and 19½" tall.
On to the next project!
