I Scored at the Thrift Store – a Shelf with Attitude


Eclectically Vintage thrift find

Abandoned and neglected, it called to me …

Kelly, I need a loving home and you need a shelf.

“Let’s face it girl”, she said, “that empty wall in your bathroom just isn’t cutting it”.

“Actually, you need me way more than I need you”, she taunted.

Now I know you’re probably wondering why I would take home a shelf with attitude.

I needed someone to hold my robe of course.


The shelf has demanded that I add more totchakas, baubles, finds and stuff on top.

Stay tuned to see her in her full glory  and once I pick up the stray socks and sweep up the dust bunnies, I’ll show you my bathroom too.

  1. It looks great, Kelly! Do you ever shoot yourself now for things you’ve given/yardsaled away? I sure do. I’m learning from you how to see the potential (and sometimes lack of) in things I see. Come on yard sale season!

  2. You are so funny and attracted to the bad guys, too! But hey that’s ok, because they always seem to be the best lookin”! Have a beautiful weekend!

  3. I can’t believe you found it like this. My luck would have been the shelf, painted in 1980’s mauve, with flowers stenciled on it.
    Did the ogre say anything to you as your purchased your shelf, or are you banned from her store? I need more info!

    1. I’ll make room for you on the couch…lol! I have to put my hands over my ears when I walk past certain things! My husband just shakes his head and laughs.

  4. Love it!!! So far all the items “crying out for your help” have been appearing “well-behaved” and well-suited for your gorgeous home!

  5. That is a great shelf. They aren’t that easy to find. Especially in a worn state like that if you like the shabby chic style. I have been looking for one or a double shelf for my grand daughters growing snow globe collection. Great find.

  6. Great shelf!!!! Sometimes thrift store items call me, too, but usually not with as much ‘rude. 🙂 I also learned something new, although it shouldn’t have been surprising. There are lots if ways to spell the word for knick-knacks in Yiddish! I’ve always seen “tchotchke.” Thanks for the lesson! 🙂
