Repurposed Earring & Ring Holder

July 10, 2014

 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.

Repurposed Cheese Grater Earring Holder
 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.

This was my first re-purposed grater earring holder, and also my first project using an Annie Sloan Chalk Paint that wasn't Pure White or Old White!

  1. How fun is this Carlene? Love how it all came together!!

  2. Clever re-purpose. It was originally a book stand and sat on a desk or shelf
