Beadboard Shelf

When I build furniture I stick with the motto, "Go big or go home!"  I don't know why. For some reason I think that if I'm building something I might as well build it big.  This isn't always the best policy, of course.  I started building a shelf the other day with some scrap wood that I had leftover from other projects.  Ummm. . .it was massive. I had it stuck in my head that this shelf would serve as a faux mantel since I don't have one in my home.  But seriously, it was way too big!  So I reassessed and cut everything down to a much more mangeable size.  Yeah, sometimes smaller is better.

I painted two coats of antique white and then used a Ralph Lauren Tobacco Glaze to make the details POP! 

Without glaze:

                                                                          With glaze:

And then, of course, a top coat of poly.  I got the Fleur De Lis hooks at the Hob Lob (love that store). 

A little Easter-scape
(the pictures make my wall and shelf look the same color but they really are different)
Yay!  I have a "mantel" of sorts!  Love it!

Nice job! Thanks for sharing the difference between glaze vs. not - it really illustrated why it's done. :-)
