Galvanized Farmhouse Wall Shelf

Do you ever shop your home? I mean rather than the thrift shop or clearance aisle? Shop for things in your closets and cupboards that you may not always use? Well I did today when I saw a photo in a magazine, I knew I could reproduce the wall shelf with a tray I had in my kitchen.

This was my inspiration for this project.

A large galvanized tray with handles that I used once in a while but I could donate to my repurposed project.
This is an easy one... just 3 easy steps! I cut a board to use as a shelf and painted it to match the galvanized steel tray. 

Step 1: Measure the width of the tray and cut a 2" wide board to size. 
Step 2: Paint the board with Fusion Mineral Paint's Metallic Paint in Brushed Steel. I pounced it on with a brush to give it a galvanized effect.
Step 3: Use E6000 glue to attach the board to the inside of the tray.

I attached a D ring to the back of the tray with hot glue and hung it on the wall in my new home office!

This galvanized wall shelf looks just like the one in the magazine and it didn't cost me a cent because I shopped my house!
