This project used up a lot of old
useless things I had lieing around:
an old door from a neighbor's remodel,
a crate missing the bottom
and falling apart, corbals and piece of wood, hooks, drawer pull and a piece
of decorative trim.
Money I have
invested in this piece: $0!
I put a coat of white paint on everything
I just dry brushed the white over the crate
because I wanted to see the old crate,
but I also wanted it to blend in to become one piece.
To tie in the shelf, I did a grey wash over the stain, then a white wash.
Here it is at Roses and Rust
Vintage Market. The crate not only stands the door up, it provides a
useful shelf, in this case for display!
This was a really fun project and I was
able to clean out a lot of items to boot!
