I just started doing some wood working, with a few tips & alot of inspiration from Bamboo Ben
So I made this 8x10 wall shelf to fill in a gap on one of my walls.
I am ready for some critical remarks, what say you?






how it fits in to the rest of the Decor....

I say not bad at all.I applaud you for taking on this project on your own.
I would have done one light coat of varnish over the torched burned wood though.
What the varnish does is seals the wood after you burn it, and gives it a nice
patina.If you want this done PM and I will do it at no charge for you since I
am in the middle of restoring a vintage bar requiring alot of varnish work.

This is a a great idea.
I like the smaller scale to handle the shot glasses.

The white walls don't do it justice.
I would like to see how it fits in with the rest of the room.

Thanks, I did apply a light stain & sealed it with semi gloss varathane, hard to notice in the pictures, but your right a different finish might look better?
As for the flat white walls in my place, I rent, so I am stuck with boring paint in my House, I would very much like to do a Mid-Century
color pallet here.

Thanks for your input, Thanks 1961surf for the offer also.

I think you did an awesome job and the finish is fine.

And the leopard print is a great background

Great shelf. But the white walls dont work with tiki. Try a green or orange.

I like the small scale of the shelf too. The notch details really sell it.

And what nice digs you have.

Hi Ben, I know! I hate the white room!!!!!! I have been putting pressure on the Landlord to let me change the color
Would look so much better with some color.

one caveat, the opposite wall is wood panel which I kinda like, here is a pic, hope the rest of you can forgive the white paint.
