1-1 through 1-4

At the beginning of the summer when my husband and I moved into our new house, I was out one day looking for new shelves at garage sales. I found a cute little bookshelf/dictionary stand that I thought would be perfect with a new coat of paint. I brought it home, cleaned it up and began painting the shelves blue and yellow and the legs that attach each shelf together bright green. When my husband came home and saw the bright green legs he commented on how they looked like warp pipes from Mario and then he commandeered my project. After giving him an ultimatum (the half finished shelves in the shed had to be finished by the end of August or I would paint them plain again), he finished hand-painting them this weekend. Now we have the best shelves ever. But I don't know if they can be used as shelves . . . So far only the two little crocheted mushrooms have been put there (I will put up a pattern for these mushrooms soon).

Details of the shelves...The warp zone is my favorite...
But they are all pretty awesome......
