A Little Shelf

I'm back again with my very last pallet wood project.  I had 8 scraps left and put them together to make this:

These were the scraps leftover from all of my projects:

After cutting them to size and sanding them, I used the dry-brush and stain technique to finish them.  Click HERE for details on that technique.

After each board was finished, I started nailing the shelf together. All in all, it was a pretty easy project.  It's not hanging on the wall yet....you know, selling the Cottage, moving, etc., but it will be soon!  So for the purposes of this blog post, I staged it on some cloth-covered boxes. Classy, huh??

How about a close-up?
Or two?

So, that's how I used the last of the pallet wood.  Stay tuned for more projects, though, just not with pallet wood!

Thanks for dropping by.  Enjoy your week and come back again soon!
