Picket Fence Shelf

Rachel, yes my good friend who gave me the vintage cooler also gave me a few sections of picket fence that had been her daughter's headboards at one point (alas, they became teenagers and no longer wanted pickets).  I took one and cut it into 3 sections--two 3 picket sections and one 4 picket section. 

I screwed them together in the back corners, added some wood bracket pieces and shelves.  Some white paint and a versatile little shelf was born, great for books, a bathroom, in a kitchen.  Here it is for sale with some of my other "wares" at the Farmer's Market.

  2. too cute becky! I love picket fence, but it's hard to find around these parts!
    but, since that silly tree decided to fall on my house last week, (and my privacy fence) I will have some very weathered dog eared fencing to play around with.
    ohh, and a couple of pallets (that carried the shingles) woohooo!

    love your picket fence shelf, how fitting for your blog!
