Just before Christmas, I picked up a couple of cedar slices while at an antique mall. Why? Cuz I thought they looked cool. What I was going to do with them was not determined at the time of purchase. Just had to have them.
This week one of those slices became 2 wall shelves.
Both slices had a slight split down the middle. I used that to decide to cut the wood slices in half.
The back of the shelf is made of 3 pieces of wood, 12 inches long. I used wood glue and my Kreg jig to attached each piece to the other.
Next, I gave the back piece a “white wash” by brushing on some chalk paint, then rubbing it in with a paper towel. The cedar slice in attached to the back board with glue and screws from the other side. Left over trim pieces were stained and attached with glue and pin nailer for added detail.
Da Ta! Unique floating wall shelves. They will be going to my booth soon. 🙂
