Bathroom Shelf Redo


This is the "during" and "after" photo of the shelf I refinished for my guest bathroom. It still needs another "needful thing" added, perhaps a prim candle.

I made a jar of handmade soap balls yesterday to add the display, thanks to Lisa from Primitives From Above. Her recipe is so easy and inexpensive. I already had the oatmeal and soap on hand, then I used a recycled spaghetti sauce jar and attached my own handmade coffee-stained label and topped it with homespun and a jute string. Although it still needs a little more tweaking, I'm happy with the way it turned out.

How thrifty is that? I only paid $5.99 for the shelf.

Looks perfect! I am going to try Lisa's soap recipe too.

Looks great Patti - Wasn't that recipe easy? I have tons of old spaghetti sauce jars around my home along with pickle jars too. Great jars to re-do and make prim by adding a label to - ya know?

Thanks for sharing. Have a great week!!

I love how it turned out. I have to say almost all of the wood shelves I'm finding have that dang heart cut out and I just don't care for them. I prefer stars or ovals or no cut out at all. You just gave me the perfect solution. Susie
