Wall Shelf for Flowers From Thrift Store Finds

       Today I'm using these found pieces to create a 
wall sconce shelf.
Wall Display for Flowers From Thrift Store Finds
A cutting board and a vintage candle come together to create a pretty wall shelf for a recycled flower vase.
The first thing I did for this project was to re-arrange a few of the original pieces. I glued the part that was the light reflector from the candle sconce onto the piece that held the glass globe to create a shelf.

Next, I painted the piece with black hammered spray paint. Black hammered paint is the best thing to use when the piece you're painting has a lot of imperfections. The texture in the paint hides the flaws.

While I waited for the spray paint to dry, I painted the cutting board with Mustard by Fusion Mineral Paint.  Here is where you can find a Fusion Mineral Paint store near you. 
I gave the cutting board two coats then lightly distressed the edges with sandpaper.

I attached the metal shelf I made from the lamp parts to the cutting board with screws.
Lastly, I hung my new wall sconce shelf on the wall by attaching a D ring to the back of the cutting board.

The brown recycled iced coffee bottle was the perfect vase to use for the cotton stems.

I love how it is thin enough to hang in even the narrowest places in my home. My home has a lot of windows and the wall space is at a premium. 
Cutting boards from the thrift store come in all shapes and sizes. They are good for painting and repurposing and with a little imagination, you can create and recycle all in one step! 
Take a look at the project post I wrote about repurposed cutting boards --->> Ten Thrifted Cutting Board Ideas.

The shelf can hold any vase with flowers or just about anything tall you want to display.
