Remember the project I teased you with waaaaay back in January? Yes, January. Eeesh. Well, we finally got around to getting things finished!
We started with this metal flanges, rods, and tips (left), coated them with primer (center), and then coated them with a layer of oil-rubbed bronze spray paint (right).
The intention was to add more shelf storage to this wall in the tiny guest bath. The photo above shows you what we had before. It was nice, but there was not enough room to hold all the necessities that a guest bath needs.
When we took down the shelf that was there, we ended up having to patch some holes! :) Then we mounted the painted brackets to the wall, attached two self-adhesive rubber dots (like these) to each bracket, and topped them with glass pieces cut to size.
Then I added a few accessories...
The round glass and metal item above is a vintage soap dispenser. The round piece at the bottom would mount to the wall. Then the person would swivel the glass ball downward, so that soap would come out of the metal tip.
The vintage scale on the left is German. I found it on my recent junk adventure in Pequot Lakes, MN. It is the perfect size for holding wash cloths.
An antique tobacco jar hold cotton balls. Next to it, a potted plant nested in my red jute webbing flowerpot slipcover.
