Provence Industrial Shelf

We were at a garage sale when I saw this. The picture is not the best because it is from my IPhone when I was texting my mom and grandma to see if I had absolutely lost my mind for wanting to buy this.  They both said go for it.  My hubs was a little skeptical but he trusted me and loaded it up in the truck.  This piece was desperate for a new paint job!
I sanded off all the lose paint and then gave it a coat of primer and then painted it in ASCP Provence. We had our local home depot cut some board and then I gave it a coat of Jacobean.  Once again time and lighting was not on my side, so I apologize for the quality of the photos.  That is what happens when I get pieces the day before it needs to be loaded into the trailer.  :(  
We took this piece to the show on Saturday and it was scooped up quickly.  I thought it would be so neat in our sewing room with bolts of fabrics on two of the shelves and the other two lined with vintage locker baskets.  Nice thought,  but it sold and I am ok with that!  I love the white primer peaking thru! I must say I am becoming a big fan of finding industrial pieces! 
What do you think?
