Project Nursery: Mantel Shelf

If you follow Urban Squirrel you might remember me picking up this old fireplace mantel last summer.  I had plans to mount it to a wall originally but one of the legs had a bit of wood rot.  After cutting out the rot and ending up with one short leg, the mantel got set aside.  When I decided the nursery needed a shelf I sourced the mantel top from the basement.  Everything has a purpose, right?

Here it was last summer.


Here it is getting cleaned up.


I found these cast iron hooks at yes you guessed it - the dollar store!


A paint job later (using left over paint sourced from the basement), the mantel top found itself a new purpose!

It's perfect. I love that it's all dinged up and totally vintage.


Reduce, reuse and DIY it!
