This window shelf project was inspired by a day trip to a tiny shop in a town about an hour from where we live. Shops like this normally inspire me. It is good to step away from the laptop and Pinterest and see inspiration up close, in particular person.
This spot was Latitude Run packed full of amazing factors. There had been antiques, repurposed projects, reproduction pieces and farmhouse decor. All my favorites. I loved just about every piece I saw.
I don’t obtain a lot in stores like these for the reason that the prices are normally so high. It is extra of an inspirational “window purchasing” trip for me. But, on this particular day, I did choose up a couple of treasures to bring residence.
This pair of white bunnies have been best for my little cloche.
I also located two old, miniature flags that I had to have. We were there just before the Fourth of July vacation last year and I needed a tiny red, white and blue for our dwelling.
Of course, I was inspired by so quite a few items I saw in the retailer that day, but one piece really stood out and caught my eye.
Can you guess which piece it was in this image?
We employed the similar wood to make homemade corbels to attach the shelves to the window.
I loved the chippy, yellow paint the window had, but I didn’t want the wood shelves to stick out so much. So, I white washed the whole piece.

Then, I went more than it all with some sandpaper.
I didn’t add hooks to my piece since I wasn’t going to use it for coffee cups.
The most effective element of this window shelf project was that I came in way beneath budget! This entire piece expense $1!
I purchased the window for $1 and we had the rest of the supplies on hand. I saved $324!!!!!
