Shelf Redo

I found this shelf at Goodwill recently and knew it would be the perfect display piece in my booth, but the pink paint had to go!


The same day I found the shelf I also hit the enamelware jackpot! I knew I wanted to display the enamelware on this shelf so I chose a color that would make the white enamel pop!

So, I chose this gorgeous bluish gray color I already had around the house. I love it!

So much better than pink, right? :)


I'm trying really hard not to want to keep this coffee pot for myself. 

I know it'll be a little gross having an enamel urinal sitting in my booth, but it's not very often I see one of these. 



This little pot is very tempting to keep for myself too.


Here's a close up of the beautiful gray!

I love the scalloped part of the shelf.

  1. really really lovely -
    I have to tell you I was looking at the odd shaped " pourer " and thought " well isn't that unique "
    I would probably have bought it - and used it to serve drinks, lmao
    Urine anyone?
    Beautiful job! On the display cabinet - and finding those fab pieces!

  3. I love the collected look of the pots together. Keep them all! They fit perfectly into those littl ecubbies, especially the ones on the bottom!

  4. Came over from Overflowing to see the shelf. Great job merchandising your items on that shelf. I think the urinal would look great in the garden or bathroom with a trailing plant in it!

  9. The cabinet looks so much better in this color. Great job! I had to giggle at the urinal. One day while I was cleaning my booth, a man came up to me complaining about the booth next to mine, because they had an enamel "thunderpot" among their cooking pots n pans. He was quite irrate and thought it was mine.

  11. White is where it's at with that enamelware. As a RN the urinal gives me the chills. When I was pregnant years ago I would be sick every time I emptied a urinal in the hospital. Visiting from Marty's.

  15. What a great collection of enamelware!
    I've bought and sold so much enamelware, and I can honestly say I've NEVER seen an enamel urinal! Enema, yes. Urinal, no.
    Too funny!
