French Shabby Chic Crackle Paint Wall Shelf

This post is sponsored by DecoArt, but all opinions are truthful and my own. Read my full disclosure policy here. I love the look of crusty, old paint, crazed and crackled with age.

At least not in our family. No menu plan means no dinner. Or takeout. Or a hastily thrown together meal that will […]

Vintage American Flags
