Painted bamboo étagère's

I finally had some nice weather today to finish spraying the two étagère's that I bought a couple of weeks ago.
I love how they turned out and I will now have some fun playing around with the display.  I gathered some things from my old bookcase and weeded out others.

Sarah Richardson used a very similar one to mine, in season 4 of Sarah's house. Her price $225 for one, my price $70 for two!  And we live in the same shopping market.


After I took the photos, I realized that the hippo looks like he is taking a bite out of the bamboo :)

  1. Great job Mel! I think they're beautiful... even the hippo!
    The fabric on your chair goes really well with the pattern in the bamboo...
    Beautiful!
