After taking stock of the clutter at Clutter Towers, we needed extra display space!
I had this little shelf unit in the shed and now is the time for an up-cycle and repurpose to let it shine.
As usual I was so keen, I forgot to take a before picture! Lets just say it was orange wood and filthy!
First a good clean and a coat of Rust-Oleum chalk based paint, in Anthracite.
After two coats, old Ordnance Survey maps have been applied to the bottom of the
The woodwork was given a coat of natural wax.
I hung the shelves upside down so the curved edge is at the bottom,
from the sofa you can see the maps, much nicer than the bottom of bare shelving.
Now a place for all my twinkles!
I'm not normally a fan of painted wood, but can see the benefit when the items are just cheap and need a new lease of life. Much better than ending up in landfill.
I'm really happy with the way this turned out, so easy!
