Christmas Inspiration: Turn a Shelf into an Advent Calendar

Christmas Inspiration: Turn a Shelf into an Advent Calendar

There is no limit to the function of our Wall Mounted Storage Rack. It could help bring order to the chaos of a busy entry way, or be an accessory in your kitchen for the chef. All of the hooks, baskets, and shelf can be removed allowing for quick accessibility, easy sorting, and endless personal customization.

This is the product overview from the Wicker Emporium site. Isn’t it a perfect description? It was exactly the point I was trying to get across when I painted this multi-functional shelf.

When I first thought about how it could be used, an Advent calendar did NOT come to mind. But, with so much inspiration online, I thought that with a little creativity, this could be turned into a one of a kind Advent calendar.

I made a quick run to the nearest hardware store and picked up some red paint swatches in different shades and cut them to the perfect size. Then I stenciled on some numbers with white paint and added those adorable little clothes pins. Voila!!

I wanted to add some color and I figured the red would pop with this beautiful Miss Mustard Seed Milk Paint color called Eulalie’s Sky. I have it all over my own home and it is a nice alternative to the traditional green and red Christmas colors that we are accustomed to.

Who would have thought this unique shelf could be transformed into an Advent calendar and become part of your holiday decor? The possibilities are endless!

You can go to your nearest Wicker Emporium and pick up the Wall Mounted Storage Shelf and do this in your own colour scheme, or, just hop on over to the Facebook Page (Click on day 6) where they are giving this one away to one lucky winner today as part of the 12 Days of Giveaways!
