When moving into my new place this past summer I got a little carried away buying more knick-knacks then one NYC apartment can hold. One of these trinkets was an old fashioned “Pop Shop” shelf from Urban Outfitters. I stumbled upon this little treasure while scouring the web for some funky side tables. It was one of those panic purchases you make so you can qualify for free shipping (something I am often guilty of). Even though I try my best to suppress my shopoholic tendencies, I just couldn’t resist.
As unique as the shelf is alone, I decided to jazz it up with some color. Using a wallpaper sample I had laying around and some double sided tape I was able to make this antique shelf truly eye-catching.
- Unfortunately this shelf is currently sold out so instead grab a wine crate from your local liquor or grocery store.
- Instead of wallpaper try this using scrapbooking paper (all you need is one sheet!) or better yet, a drawing or design of your own.
