The internet and places like Pinterest are laden with lots of great ideas, and we often leverage those ideas as inspiration for our own work, both in our homes and for The Painted Hammer. I had saved this awesome L-O-V-E shelf tutorial by Keeley Criswell at DIY: Crafting It Myself for some time, and I couldn't be more pleased with our take on her project.
Not too long ago, Shane disappeared for a while and then called for me to come look at his work. Lo and behold, he had cut and arranged wood according to the blog's instructions (with some enhancements), and he was showing me his progress on the shelf. It looked great.
Once he was done with his part, we delivered the shelves to Audrey in two pieces. She did her magic with finishing, and the shelf is now available at our retail booth. Here are some photos of the shelf as it was being constructed and assembled. Aren't my husband and his sister a talented pair?
