This is an over-the-sink kitchen shelf from the thrift shop. It's the single sink size, 30 inches. I tried a new type of chalk paint today from Dutch Boy in the color "Popcorn".
I was pretty happy with the coverage. I brushed on two coats.
Next I added a grain sack stripe stencil from Old Sign Stencils Homestead Blend Coffee Collection.
I stenciled "Coffee Served Here" in the center of the shelf.
I added grain sack stripes on the other side as well with red acrylic paint. I then wiped on a coat of Minwax Paste Wax in Natural.
My coffee shelf is a great way to display old coffeepots, mugs, thermoses and coffee tins.
Since I had all of my paints and stencils out, I took a value board from Menard's. It was the right size already saving me having to cut it off in our cold garage! It's a 1 x 10" which is really about 9 1/4" wide.
First I base coated it with a flat black rustoleum paint, "Canyon Black". Then I brushed on the Dutch Boy Chalk finish paint in popcorn.
My board was then distressed with sandpaper, and hooks were added for mugs or for other kitchen wares.
Vintage Fireking barrel mugs on display on my coffee sign!
