Mr. Frugalista went on a treasure hunt during his lunch break one afternoon and brought a Vintage Wooden Wall Shelf home. Cute but it was missing one of the pegs and there was some damage to the wood. When I set my eyes on it I instantly thought of a pretty wall shelf for a girls room. I named this one Mémère after my grandmother Marie Antoinette - you will see why further down in this post.
Here is what it looked like before the makeover during the process of repairing the wood.
I painted the entire shelf with ASCP Old White chalk paint and the shelves with ASCP...here it is... Antoinette!
The heart cut out was screaming, "I'm the "O" in your L O V E"!
To add interest to the shelves I stenciled down the middle with Old White.
I couldn't find wooden pegs that matched the originals so I decided to add a modern touch with these cute brushed nickel IKEA knobs.
When I flipped it over I discovered it was handcrafted in Canada by Hutton & Company. I couldn't bring myself to paint over their stamp so I painted around it. If anyone knows anything about this company, I would love it if you dropped me a line and shared the details!
Mémère, the Vintage Wooden Wall Shelf, will soon be posted in my Etsy Shop.
