We bought a small, well-worn, green shelf unit at a yard sale last year. It is forty inches tall and twenty three inches wide, with six narrow shelves and two hooks on the back for hanging.
We liked it and wanted it and knew we would find a use for it someday. Well, the someday was today and it became our *nature shelves*.
We left the paint as is, keeping that extra character and time worn appearance, that can surely get by in our very casual log home.
We already have a Nature Cabinet in our kitchen, but these nature shelves will only have a few items at a time..to focus on.Right now, two shelves are filled with bird nests.
one shelf with hornet and wasp nests
two shelves of field guides
and the bottom one of smooth white stones, easily reached by little hands.
We love to surround ourselves with old things and re-purpose them. But sometimes we have to wait a bit until we have the inspiration.
