Build a Rustic Shelf Tutorial

Build Your Own Rustic Shelf Tutorial
I have been trying to find something to fill up my wall in my living room.  I saw this fun shelf at Faded Country and I knew I had to make it.  I love the blogging world.  There are so many fun things to make!
Here is my shelf project.
(1) 1x4x8  (cut the board in half so the wood is 4 feet long) (I had Home Depot cut my boards)
(1) 1x6x8  (Cut the board in half so the wood is 4 feet long)
Trim for top and bottom.
Wood Glue
nails (I used my brad nailer)
Something to hang it to the wall


 Opps! Just imagine the picture turned.

 After I had the trim on, I put calking on the trim and in the nail holes.  Let it dry.

 To get the distresed look, sand the board down so the stain shines through.  I actually put extra stain on the white paint to give it more of an antique look.

The hardest part of this shelf was the trim.  I have a hard time thinking about angles and putting them together.  I went through a lot of trim to get it right.  My husband does well at the angles, but I wanted to do it all by myself.   If I can do it, anyone can.  My husband did help me hang it.
