Rustic Shelves

In a little alcove in my living room we have a little sitting area and our TV. I recently painted the walls in this area a beautiful (to me) green colour called “Lush”.

Last week, we put two shelves up to hold some knicknacks.

Nice looking shelf, it would be hard to find a more rustic board.

You have a flair for colors MsDebbie I’ll never get, bold, shocking and cool. Being stuck in basic white, coffee white and light tan I wish I could do colors.

I like the look of your rustic shelf with the bright colors. It is a lot like our juniper mantel with all the detail.

Just browsing around, running into your good looking shelves.

Is this a local trunk you sliced for a shelf?

no, we purchased this when at a lumberyard. I just couldn’t leave it behind.
I think the plank cost $30 and we got two pieces out of it.

At a wood show we saw something similar (except shorter) and it was going for $100!!!
