Red Tricycle Shelf with Hardware Cloth


Everything looks better with chicken wire or hardware cloth...


A simple thrift store wooden shelf that had seen better days gets a coat of Miss Mustard Seed Milk Paint in Tricycle Red.


The shelf was then coated with Tough Coat giving the red a rich satin protective coating.


Chicken wire, or in this case Hardware Cloth, is stapled to the back giving the shelf a whole new look.  

Mini clothespins can be used to attach tags, photos, notes to the wire.

A new life for an old cast off that will look great in an office or kitchen.

  2. Love the color, and the addition of the hardware cloth. I've been wanting to get some. I got 2 rolls of chicken wire free over the last few years and still have plenty left.
