My Junkin' Friend Jodi gave me this for free. I think it's a combination magazine rack and extra toilet paper holder for the bathroom.
My up-cycle started with a couple coats of Annie Sloan Chalk Paint in "Cream".
Then I added 1/2" chicken wire to the back with small nails. I also stabilized the shelves with a few extra nails through the side boards, as it was a bit warped.
As always, I distressed the shelf with sandpaper, and then waxed it with Annie Sloan clear wax. I painted my junk stash handle with Annie Sloan in "French Linen". It was then screwed onto the top board.
Since I haven't posted any new Valentine's Day decor yet this year, I have decked out the shelf with a vintage red metal tray, a cheese strainer heart and a small wooden "love" sign. The cheese strainer is tied onto the handle with a scrap of muslin.
A perfectly chippy little red metal basket finishes out my vignette!
