DIY Barn-Wood Shelf

I had a vision.  I knew what I wanted.  I knew where I was putting it too!

I needed two things, barn-wood and beautiful chippy corbels.  First stop, Fragments.

I found these lovely babes at his location in Linden, Memories and More.  Aren’t they lovely?

Next, Barn-wood.  I contacted White Barn Vintage.  She had some awesome wood for me.  Even came with some wormholes!

Next, I needed a handy man!  Thank goodness for my dad.  He has worked construction his whole life.  Down to his barn we went.  Thanks Dad!

I didn’t want the “newly cut” edges to show.  I had my dad cut the ruff edge of another piece of barn-wood to add to the ends of the shelf.  Turned out perfect.

Then we added the corbels and BAM.  LOVE LOVE LOVE!

  2. Oh this is a great job! I really like the rustic touch you’ve added to it, and I love the contrast between the wood and the white.

    1. Isn’t barn-wood great??? I also like that it’s in my house and I want to know the long history it had. SO cool. Thanks for reading Amy.

    1. Yes April. You’re new to the area but get out there mama! I’ve tried to make as many connections as possible, plus I LOVE To shop! 🙂

    1. Thank you Amy. I’m the type that changes a lot in the house/decor wise. I can’t see myself taking down this shelf. So.In.Love. Thanks again for hosting to Link Party too. I feel honored to be featured.

  4. I would love to make a shelf or two like this but never run across corbels around here. You are really making me want to go search them out. 🙂

    Also, you take great pictures!
