Red Tricycle Shelf with Hardware Cloth

5:00:00 AM

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.

    1. Me too Carlene! Red is the accent in my very neutral 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.

  3. Great idea - I'm loving the chicken wire lately too.

  4. Looks amazing Susan! You did a wonderful job!
