Our DIY Guru, Fern restored a shelf to create a beautiful rustic cookbook holder for her kitchen. The shelf was purchased about a year ago at a Habitat for Humanity ReStore (at a steal, only $10!) and has been purposeless until Fern found inspiration to give it a make-over.
First, Fern cut the top off of the shelf to accommodate for a flat top of old fence slats. The unit was painted with linen white and a mustard yellow paint, then stained and wiped off. The fence slats were measured for the top and sides of the unit. They were then sanded down and stained, lightly painted with a red all-purpose paint, then stained again and wiped off. The wood slates were attached with wood glue and nails. The rustic look of the piece is gorgeous, it is perfect for a cook book holder in a kitchen!

Why recycled paint?
Amazon Select Paints are manufactured from quality, surplus paint that Amazon collects from government, businesses, and consumers. By replacing new paint with recycled paint, resources that would have been used in making the new paint, including the energy used to make and transport the paint and minerals, chemicals, and pigments are saved.
Using recycled content paint, prevents paint material from ending up in a landfill or, worse, down a drain. Recycled paint saves resources, saves energy, reduces pollution, and reduces landfill waste!
