Antique Booth Storage With a New Shelf

Good Day Friends,
Today I spent the day at my antique booth rearranging.  The vintage tables and large round table from the previous blog had to go in to the booth.  I am looking for room in my house to store things.  Putting it in the basement is out, as the stairs are steep also it is an UN-finished basement.   So I had these tables sitting in the dining room.  I couldn't take it another day to much clutter!
 My antique booth is packed but, I was determined to make room for these tables.  My friend went with me and between the two of us it was a success.  They say more hand makes less work.  Boy was I glad I had more hands especially today.    Well, small things make happy me.  Yea! my dining room is back in order.    
Later in the day after a few minutes of lounging, resting and thinking about my newest project it was time to get on it. A shelf that is super heavy will need toggle bolts to hold in the wall.  I  found some oops paint at Lowe's a gray putty color. I didn't notice it said exterior paint.  Does it matter?  More durability right?  Well, I  painted this color that I didn't think was all that exciting but, after getting it on the shelf I really love it.   I had some water slide paper I purchased online EBay.  Printed a graphic on it that I got from Graphics fairy. 
Placed this in the middle of the shelf.  I then painted pink roses around the top, then the edges. I  added a gloss polyurethane to protect the rose painting.    
After filling the holes and painting the roses

After gray putty paint and the water slide decal from Graphics Fairy and unfilled holes.. Huge holes.
Hope you enjoy!
