Kitchen apothecary

So I mentioned I am organizing our house (lately the kitchen) and I was lucky to have been given a huge cubby storage shelf. In its former life it was in some mans garage . A friend of ours bought it at a yard sale and had it in her basement for a long time. She was over and we were talking about my storage (lack of) issue. She mentioned this shelf /cubbie thing and asked if I was interested. Of course I said yes (sight unseen) so when I went to pick it up it was love at first sight!!!!! I knew what I was going to do right away. I went to Hobby Lobby to buy some enamel numbers I spotted there before (I just needed the perfect project for them). This was the project!!!! I wanted an apothecary shelf. I always wanted one . I actually have envisioned one day having an herbal/candle store set up like a vintage apothecary. Once I bought the numbers I came home and started hammering away!!! My husband really likes the shelf better since I added the numbers and could see my "vision" for it in the kitchen. So here it is.....

I love this!!! It's great that something so lovely wasn't destined to spend the rest of its life neglected in a garage. (visiting from Farmhouse Friday.)
