I gave this dated shelf a couple of coats of a chalky paint and then distressed the edges.

I added a zinc tag at the top and a jute rope for hanging.

I added a large clip on the bottom to hold one of my favorite vintage photos of my Grandfather.

  1. I am a huge fan of your work - and this project is a sample of why. So fresh and creative (and functional!)


    1. Donna thank you so much for saying so. This is the kind of project that I like doing best. I love the challenge of giving something a new life and keeping it from the trash. Thanks!
