“Not a moment of life is wasted on a farm. Others may have been more places but haven’t out lived me.”
–Jim Fisher, Texas Rancher
One of the things I love the most about heart of farmhouse style is the waste not want not philosophy. Sure you can buy all new items, but a true farmhouse makes use of what is on hand.
For this month’s Thrift Store Challenge, I used that same waste not attitude to make a DIY Farmhouse Round Shelf out of an unlikely find.
- Upcycle an item(s) from a thrift store, resale store, or garage sale into a new piece of decor.
- There’s no monthly theme.
- There’s no budget to stick to.

These little round farmhouse shelves are pretty popular right now. As soon as I saw them, I knew just what I was going to do.
I was going to use an item that most people have, but rarely use,one that is quite common at the thrift store……….a springform pan.
DIY Farmhouse Round Shelf
- Springform Pan
- Piece of Scrap Wood
- Saw (This is the one I use for small projects like this.)
- Ribbon/Twine/Yarn (optional)
- Remove the bottom piece of the springform pan.
- Take a piece of scrap wood and cut off any excess so the piece can lay in the middle of the pan (upright).
- Glue in wood piece.
- Optional – Not all the farmhouse shelves have the twine; some sit flat on the wall. If you wish, add the ribbon/twine to the lock mechanism of the pan.For mine, I used a piece that came around a sheet set. For a twine/yarn, you can use the same tying technique as here.
- Also optional, if you wanted to get super fancy, you could easily drill holes so your twine/ribbon could go on either side.You could also add chicken wire to the back as well.
Now, you are ready to decorate your farmhouse shelf as you like.
And now for more thrifty goodness!
