Ok, ok, I’ll tell you.
It’s white paint!
Monica from Monica Wants It! knew she had a prize on her hands when she first found this gold shelf. That’s because she has vision. Me on the other hand… I would have probably just given it to my sister as-is as a practical joke or something. But all it took was some white paint and a cleverly placed dowel, and now she has a rockin’ ribbon display and craft storage. Cute!
