A wall shelf with hooks created from a
very interesting side of the road find.



There is an antiques/junk dealer on my way to 
work who puts broken pieces of furniture 
on the side of the road...

and I am here to pick them up!

This was one of the 2 pieces of a broken table I found.
Both pieces looked like this 
only one had the carving in the center. 

After cutting off the leg, 
I used the curved flat piece to create a wall shelf.

I attached hooks to the front and added a shelf to the top.
I gave the entire piece a coat of white chalk paint
then stained it with dark wax.

The piece has some gorgeous carvings that really popped 
after the painting and distressing.
