Vintage Griddle Shelf

After giving this old aluminum handle-less griddle a coat
of chalk paint....



... the possibilities became clear....
I added a handle where one was missing, this was a piece of
drift wood that I carved down to fit into the handle slot and added Gorilla Epoxy to keep it there...


I drilled a hole into the top of the handle for a string...


A shelf was added by drilling through the aluminum
and screwing the shelf on from the back. 
Aluminum is very easy to drill through. 
The shelf is an old piece of moulding left over 
from another project.



The best way to hang this is by using a Dischanger...
they are the perfect solution for hanging items 
with no hook on the back. 
The large size is needed for this heavy pan.


This little shelf is the perfect place for kitchen spices...





Another great addition to a farmhouse kitchen!

  7. Hi Susan! This is such a clever project! My husband won't part with his grandmother's griddle so I guess I'll have to go antiquing! One question,I've never seen the Disc plate hanger, where can I get it? Keep the great ideas coming! Thanks :)

  8. A griddle shelf. I do believe this is original, and I am not surprised that it was you to come up with the idea.

    1. Emilou thanks and the Dischangers are great but I don't know if you can buy them in a store. I would go to their website or google where you can get them :)

  11. This is an amazing reclamation! When I saw this on Hometalk, I first thought you had an enamelware skillet and I was really jealous. Great job. This is adorable.
