Where I live we have something we affectionately call-
THE CURB ALERT!
Which means something is left out usually with a FREE sign attached,
come and get it now......and that is where this came from.
Most often you find a headboard but this time just the footboard.
Too low to make a bench PERFECT for a shelf.
I plan to flip the board so the legs point up and the flat underside is where the shelf sits.
The footboard was from a full size bed.
After measuring I went to get a piece of pine about 54''.
I had help attaching the shelf.
The nail gun scares me!
The shelf piece is flush with the wall, there was space
between the back piece so I did not need to add hanging hooks.
I sanded the shelf edges to round them up a bit.
I used Chalky Finish spray paint on this project.
You can find it at most stores that sell spray paint.
I was able to get it at Joanns' Fabric with a coupon.
I used FOLK ART Clear Wax to seal the finish
The sun was not on my side.
It has a beautiful smooth finish but the pictures look blotchy.
Decorative hooks could be added but I did not have any on hand,
My plans were to get it ready for the Flea Market the next day!
The shelf sold quickly at the Flea Market to a women who planned to
hang it over their T.V. - She did not want hooks anyway :)
Let me know in the comments about an item you may have found on the side of the road.
Thanks for stopping by !
