Tackle It Tuesday

I thought I would post about a thrifted shelf I bought for $1.00.
I found a really cute retro clock and decided to put it in my bathroom.

I wanted it where I could easily see it.
I've been looking for a metal shelf and stumbled upon
this wooden shelf for $1.00! How could I pass it up?
This shelf WAS black.....my battery was dead so, didn't get a picture of it
while it was black.


I found some cute wooden embellishments at Hobby Lobby for a total of $4.00

and glued them on.......A can of almond spray paint.....

I turned it upside down because I wanted a towel holder by my sink as well....now this picture is not where I am hanging the shelf....I don't have a hanger on the back yet....maybe I'll tackle that by next Tuesday.

Total cost of thrifted shelf makeover?

$7.00!!!

Now that came out great. I like how you flipped it and made it work for you. I really like how you added character to it as well. Love that almond color :0). I just bought a can of heirloom white but I'm really "digging" your almond and may go back and exchange my can :0)
Enjoy your day my friend!
