Broken ALGOT shelf to wall art for living room

Materials: 2 broken Algot shelves

I used two Algot metal shelves which had been smashed in the transportation and rather than binning them I changed re-purposed them and made some wall “art”.

I used three different colour wool threads and a needle to create different arrow shape patterns to the shelves. The best part of these are that you can vary them endlessly.
