Trash to Treasure Shelf (1 pic)

lydia1959March 11, 2010

Mine wasn't so much T2T cause I paid for the pediment which I found on Craigslist and I also bought the piece of wood for the top. Most any pediment (an architectural piece or a decorative piece to a dresser) would work. I'd love to make another with old chippy painted found pieces.

The bottom piece to my shelf was originally flipped upright and was on the top back of an old dresser.

That is too cool, Lydia! A great idea for those flat small architectural pieces you're lucky to come across, but never know what to do with~now I will!! Thanks for sharing. ;o)

That is so cool and I love the doggy bookends. Great job with the color too. I'm stuck in the paint everything white mode (used to be gold), but that black really works with a lot of different things.

You did a great job, Lydia! Several of my favorite things: junk, the color black and dogs! LOL
