The edge of this display shelf is trimmed with vintage buttons in all shades of whites for soft and subtle texture. Painted in Old White, distressed and stained with dark wax it would make a pleasing addition to shabby chic, antique or primitive decor.

I left the original threads on the old buttons–a charming time-honored detail. The buttons reflect the light giving off a soft pearl-like, simmer effect.

Painted in Old White, the distressing shows hints of black and duck egg blue layered underneath. Hand waxed with clear and dark wax. Solid wood. Features four, sturdy double hooks for display or heavy-duty storage.

  2. I just bought some beautiful tags this weekend and didn't know exactly what I was going to do with them. Now I do. I also LOVE what you did with the buttons.

  3. This is really cool! I haven't had a chance to respond to this yet but I am putting something together to link back and say thanks soon! BTW, I love the bright colors you use on your pieces. –Analisa


  4. I've had this collection of buttons since I was 18…. and yes, it was hard to use them. I figure I'll find others to replace them at some point. It was fun to make something that someone loved and would appreciate.


  5. I just finished a wooden tool tote with old buttons on it today, so when you linked this up at Knick of Time Tuesday, it grabbed my attention! I'll be featuring you at next week's party. Thanks so much for sharing it.

    P.S. – Please add my button for the party to your post so others know where the party is. My buttons are in a tab at the top of my page. You can also grab the “I Was Featured” button to put on your blog!

    Thanks & Blessings,
    Angie @ Knick of Time
