Today I'll be joining Etsy Cottage Style for their Cottage What-Not Party. A what-not is a Victorian term for an ornament used for decoration in a room and it also includes the shelf or cupboard that they are displayed on.
This is the what-not shelf we put over our dining- room window. It's a 2x10 that was painted the same green color to match out Farm Table and was edged with a floral patterned molding that was spray painted Cherrywood tone. The shelf is held by 3 rusted iron brackets with a floral and bird motif.
The What-Not's displayed are a few pieces of my hand-wrought aluminum collection, Viking Glass, and Agate Glass
There is also a smaller what-not shelf made from a wood and ceramic cupboard and a wine bottle shelf beneath it.
