Making A Custom Vintage Corner Shelf Unit Made Out Of Old Chicken Wire And Reclaimed Wood

Upcycle With Old Chicken Wire And Reclaimed Wood To Create A Country Corner Unit For Your Antique Shop Or Home Kitchen

Short on space in your antique shop or mall? Try creating a custom corner shelf unit made out of old chicken wire and a reclaimed wood frame. This idea is especially suited for displaying Country collectibles and kitchenwares.

Hanging Kitchen Tools On The Chicken Wire

While this clever corner unit is ideal for a shop, you can certainly use this in as rustic or country style kitchen. Not only do you get plenty of shelving space, but you can hang kitchen utensils, tools, keys or small framed pictures on the chicken wire. Utensils and
decorative accessories look lovely hung with a plaid ribbon or other country look.

Visiting The Curio Cabinet Antiques in Manchester, Connecticut

I found these great chicken wire corner shelving units at The Curio Cabinet Antiques Shop on Main Street in Downtown, Manchester, Connecticut. Mother and daughter owners brought these corner display shelves back from California where a fella they discovered makes these units out of old materials.
