I call these Bookshelves loosely because there are in fact very few books and alot of junk on these shelves. When looking for a place to put the things I was clearing off my mantle, I got a phone call from the 1980's saying they wanted all their country crocks back! I have to admint there were pictures of neices and nephews on here that are at least 10 years old. I even found a rowing award my husband and I recieved when we were first married with no kids in 1983- we didn't even live in this house at the time! It was over due for a good weeding and cleaning.
So this turned into a huge project. Pretty soon I was out in my garage again with the cans of spray paint.
