This shelf is from a company called Wisteria, which if you have never heard of them, check out their website! Anyway, I took this picture to my builder and he made it happen for half the price. Oh, and did I mention I had two built? With such a good deal, I decided I could stain myself. From the picture, it looks like a lighter oak stain sanded down and distressed. Well after many weeks of on again off again hard hard work, I am finally pleased! I went to antique shops all around to find books, nick nacks, and TJMaxx is where i found my jinger jars and murcury glass objects. I think the arranging and things may get added to and swapped around, but for now I am pleased. First, let me show you the before....
|AGH, such blah space!|
|Here is the shelf filling in the odd space between a window and the fireplace. Remember I painted the walls a slate-blue accent color which I like against the roustic shelf.|
