Custom Picture shelves...



Hello Crafty Friends!

Today I will share how I made these picture shelves.  I couldn't find any pre-made to the size specs I wanted for this wall, so I did some research on Pinterest and came across this tutorial at Viva Cindy Blog.  Literally, we have the same exact story!!  LOL!

So here it goes:
The blank wall!

The supplies!  Oops, forgot to fill in the nail
holes.  Couldn't tell anyways.  LOL!
The can of GF top coat was
empty (how did that happen??)
I used Minwax's spray polyurethane satin.
Lowe's cut all the wood to size for me (30")
2- 1x4 pieces and 1- 1x2 piece for each shelf.

Glued in between with good 'ole Elmer's wood glue.

Since I wasn't using power tools and was home alone, I used
a piece of scrap to hold in place while I nailed together.

Ta Daa!!
1 down and 4 to go.  :)

All ready to sand.

Stained with one coat of GF Java Gel.
Then out to get sprayed.

I used black wood screws and went into the studs.  They
were not exactly centered on this wall (surprise, surprise),
but you can't tell because there are pics in front of
them.  ;)
That's it!  Now I am off to work on the craft room.  Got one piece started.  I'll share that soon.  It will be a work in progress.  I sure miss my old craft room at the old house.  I'm sure this one will be just as fabulous!  Yay!!

Until next time...

Pin It!
