Just a quick post - I can hear the water running in the guest shower-room so our friends will be surfacing soon!
Thought you might like to see my little shelf. I had seen such shelves in various books and magazines and wanted one for a narrow wall alongside the back door in my kitchen but couldn't find anything to fit. Found the pine shelf in a charity shop for £2.50 and brought it home and got D to cut it to length and make the bar along the bottom for me..
I then painted it Tapestry Green and distressed it a little and waited to find some old hooks to put on the bottom.
Couldn't find anything at all suitable so got the idea of using doweling which D cut and fitted and I painted and distressed again - am really pleased with the finished effect and it fits perfectly.
The pleasure I get from something made do and mended is far greater than if I had been able to buy something ready made and I keep looking at it and enjoying having it on my wall. What do you think?
Hope you all have a good weekend and to those in UK hope the Bank Holiday surprises us with some good weather for a change!
