Hello beautiful friends! Today I am sharing 12 of my thriftiest hanging shelf makeovers!
I know ya’ll were expecting to see a kids’ table and chair set today. It was actually this pink set here that has been in my booth for forever. I decided to bring it home and give it a redo, but it turns out that one of the chairs was broken! No wonder it hadn’t sold. I had already started sanding the table when I discovered the break in the chair so it will still get another makeover. I need to figure out a fix for the chair first though so it is not quite ready to share just yet.
One thing I have a hard time passing up at thrift stores and yard sales are wood shelves. They are functional, which makes them great sellers, and there are so many ways to update them!
Take a look at these gems before:
They were just begging for some love, and some of them didn’t even start out as shelves!
Enjoy this fun collection from my archives!
Up first is this cute combination of parts I picked up from a yard sale and the thrift store:
The mirror only cost a dollar, and I switched out the eagle for a lamp final that worked much better!
It’s a super oldie! See more of it HERE.
This one is probably the biggest transformation considering it was once a footboard!
I was originally going to turn it into a sign, but when that didn’t quite go as planned…this happened.
See how I transformed that footboard into this shelf HERE.
This is a favorite… I just love the bold numbers on this old Home Interiors piece:

This is an oldie but goodie made from a shutter I had hanging around for years in my garage:
I paired it with a piece of scrap wood and some brackets from a another shelf and voila!

This is another old favorite…because you know how much I adore a simple white makeover!
And because…did you see where it started??
This was actually a remake of a remake…see the first makeover HERE!
This next one is a recent redo! I picked this up the last time Nancy and I went thrifting:
I added fabric to the back of this one and love how it turned out.
See more of this one HERE.
**Nancy and I are actually going thrifting again today!** 😀
Here’s another 80’s redo that was part of my March Madness series back in 2016:
The 80’s rocked those hearts didn’t they?

This next one was also part of that same March Madness series, and started out as a drawer:
See more of this drawer turned shelf HERE.
This next one was one my son, Jack, redid. It was the first project piece he picked out himself…
Adding beadboard to the back always adds a touch of charm and the drawer pull was a fun addition.
Visit this one HERE.
This shelf was a collaboration with Jack…
I thought it was a fun piece, especially for only $5, but it is still for sale in my shop.

I shared another 80’s charmer at the beginning of this year…
It sold right away woohoo!
Revisit this cutie HERE.
And finally, this is my all-time favorite…probably because it started out as trash:
I actually kept this one, and it is hanging in our downstairs guest bathroom.
See the whole makeover HERE.
And that’s it! Cute decor doesn’t have to be expensive…most of these shelves cost less than an extra value meal! 😀
I always enjoy looking back at past projects. I hope you did too!
