Round Sifter Shelves

4 Materials
1 Hour

We went on a mini vacation a few weeks ago, and I knew that I wanted to find something cool to bring home for a project. We chanced upon a cute variety store, and I purchased two of these sifters.

Bring them home

I have seen some beautiful shelves made with these, and I wanted to do the same. I was a bit worried about them being too heavy, and not being able to hold up anything in them, but more on that later.

Purchase photo hangers

I picked these up from the hardware store. They were the biggest ones there, but still not very big. Hopefully they'll do the trick

Nail them in

I then nailed one to each back of the sifters. Those tiny nails are so small it was not easy to do!

Hang them up

I then chose a spot in our bedroom to hang them. I think they look great there!

Grab some florals

I then grabbed these floral branches I had at home. They are perfect for a finishing touch!

Snip them

Then, using wire cutters, I snipped off a handful of branches.

About this much.

Place the flowers

I then laid the flower branches into the shelves no glue necessary. It looks so pretty!

This is what they look like all finished. I really love the subtle farmhouse look. Being that I am uncertain how string they are, for now I will just use them for show. I may decide later down the line to swap out the florals for something else. But I love love love them as they are!

The End!

I hope you liked this idea, and give something similar a try too!

      We found them in a random little shop. You can probably find them at a kitchen wares wholesale store.

      Why? Because it’s round and goes on a wall?! Not remotely.

    Yes, it is round and goes on a wall. It is very similar to the cheese box tutorial, I don't see much of a difference except one has a shelf in it.
