The shelf is located along our new interior wall where the ladders are in this photo.
The creative process on a larger scale is such a novelty for me, I used a jig saw for the first time and cut some curves following the knots in the pine. So fun.
I was hoping to create something unique, modern, and industrial looking while maintaining the original shape and appeal of the boards. I love the big circular saw marks, holes and wear that the boards hold so I sanded enough to keep fingers and books safe. If you can't tell I'm thrilled with how it came out.
I plan to put Uncle Peter's painting "big coloured mama" above the shelf and hang musical instrument around it on the wall. The house feels more and more like my house everyday.
