DIY Shim Header

First, I ran to Michael’s a grabbed a piece of  wood.  My dad gave me some shim wood a while back that I’m been waitin’ to do somethin’ with.  I played around with some ideas and broke some pieces in half.  I was likin’ this end result.

 Shim Layout

I ran to the local ACE Hardware store because I wasn’t in the mood for Home Depot.  And, Starbucks was close … so ya know.  I grabbed a latte, some stain and brushes.  Three different shades, dark, medium and light.

Stain Material

Next, I got busy staining.  I used a mix of colors on each piece.  Some heavier with dark and vise versa.


After that dried, I laid my pieces back out how I wanted them.  I used Gorilla Glue and glued them down.


I have SO many ideas for the rest of my shim wood.  I love it!

Now, I didn’t really have a place to put this on our walls.  I decided to rearrange my Barn-Wood DIY Shelf (Imagine that) and I found a lovely place for it there.
