Make it! wash board SHELF

Style at Home (UK) - - Love It -

1 Gen­tly sand a vin­tage wooden wash­board (check out an­tiques cen­tres and car boot sales to find one of these), then rub it down to re­move any dust and dirt. 2 Ap­ply one or two coats of clear, matt var­nish to strengthen the sur­face of the board, al­low­ing it to dry out com­pletely be­tween coats. Sand lightly be­fore adding a sec­ond coat to help the var­nish go on evenly. 3 Mark and drill a pair of cast iron shelv­ing brack­ets (try Cast in Style, which has a wide range of me­tal brack­ets) in place, equally spaced, on the un­der­side of the wash­board. 4 At­tach the fin­ished shelf to the bath­room wall us­ing screws through the brack­ets and use to dis­play your favourite pret­ti­est vin­tage bot­tles, signs and can­dles, like Sarah and Karl have.
