I hope you found your way to my blog via Project Friday hosted by Rosemarie @ Sugarplum Cottage . If you found me by another link thanks for your visit. Today's project is about recycling, upcycling & repurposing. I share with you my shelf. The back of this shelf was once a headboard to a twin size bed. My inspiration for this project came to me from the top of a mantel. My search took a few months. I remained focused and then one day I found it. Gladly paying $20.00 I took my treasure home. My husband helped me with the new piece of pine we added as the shelf. We needed to attach the brackets to the pine and then the pine to the headboard. I painted it country white & added the applique to the center of the headboard. This was a simple project. I think the total price to build this came in just under $50.00. Take a second look at old pieces that may have out lived their original purpose, and upcycle to a functional, decorative new~~old piece. Thank you have a great weekend.
