Finally finding a little free time, I managed to finish off one of my shelf projects. Jess had asked for a long skinny shelf for the bedroom for pictures and miscellaneous items. I started by cutting a five foot by 5 inch piece of pine and sanding it down really nice, including a quick sand over the corners to take the sharpness off. I also cut blanks for the three supports and, using a template and my scroll saw, cut them to the shape I wanted.
After attaching the supports, I used two coats of some nice spray paint with a satin finish. It made painting extremely easy and quick. I did sand a little between with a fine piece of sand paper so the last coat went on real smooth. Here you can see it hung in our bedroom.
