Lovely Shelf Recycle

What happens when you have this.......

A door full of robes and towels that greets you each time you walk into your bedroom
And this.......

A primitive peg rack that you really like.......especially because it was made for you by a family member.......but you can't seem to find a place for it.......because the kids grew up and don't like it in their rooms it’s sitting in the garage.......
And then get inspired by this post at The Virginia House.......

Her version is sooo pretty

Well, you buy a few of these.......
I purchased at Hobby Lobby at 1/2 price, so $1.50 each
.......and spray paint with Krylon's Satin Ivory, followed by light sanding to show some of the detail.  Give the shelf a fresh painting with leftover trim paint from your house (I like that the whites are different),  attach the hooks.......

.......and happily end up with THIS!

Aaaahhh.  Much better.

Need to relax and have a nice bath in The Lavender Tub today?  Please, help yourself.  And when you're finished you can just hang your towel on that pretty little shelf right over there!
Thanks for stopping by,


  1. That is gorgeous! Your ingenuity never ceases to amaze me. I need you to come to my house and re-purpose all my hand-me-downs into beautiful somethings.

  2. Angela, I'm so glad you're a faithful follower! I would love to come to your house and give you some ideas. Thanks for always being so encouraging - it certainly makes me want to try harder.

  3. I love this! Very pretty! I have a shelf very similar and was wanting to use is in our bathroom that is being remodeled as we speak. However, I wanted it a little different..Thanks for the great idea! I enjoy reading your blog.


I LOVE your ideas and comments. Thanks for taking the time :)
