Primitive Wood Shelf | FAITH FAMILY FRIENDS


I made this simple little wall hanging shelf outta some leftover pieces of pine boards.
They were used earlier by me, to make a concrete cross.
So after I took the frame back out, I knew I could use them for something else as well.

I just started arranging them in no particular order, just trying to piece together something that would look cute. And then after a few here and there mis-licks, I came up with this cute little shelf looking thing. lol.

It looked kinda country, so I decided to just nail it together with some headless nails and add two saw-toothed hangers on the back.

You can see that at the bottom, one of my nails tried to breath through. Oh well, I just left it that way. It was easier than trying to take a headless nail back out. lol.

Then I added some black, crafting, apple barrel paint for the base color. And then used some flat, plastic wording stencils for the "FAITH FAMILY and FRIENDS" saying. I applied it with a makeup sponge.

And here it is, all finished and from scraps of wood:



I think it's okay for a fast project out of scrap wood, don't you?

  1. Love the pink heart-shaped Wooden Frames you have created. They are so beautiful and warm to look at. I will certainly try my hand at creating some of my own.
