I found this shelf at the thrift shop for $2 recently.
Not sure if it was homemade or what it was orginally used for.
First I painted it with Annie Sloan Chalk Paint in French Linen.
I applied two coats. Then distressed it with sandpaper and applied clear wax and then a little dark wax too.
An old grater fit pretty well on the piece, and I added a little applique with E6000. The little aluminum bowl was also screwed on for rings and things.
My earring holder was inspired by the fabulous "re-purposer", Susan, at Homeroad. Click HERE for Susan's tutorial.
