VINTAGE THINGIE THURSDAY - 2ND WOODWORKING PROJECT "FAUX VINTAGE SHELF"

http://coloradolady.blogspot.com/   Joing Suzanne today for Vintage Thingie Thursday.

I have an entry today that is "VINTAGE INSPIRED".   I have been in a beginners woodworking class for about 2 months and this is my second project. 

This shelf resembles the shelves of the 1950's with the two shelves and the scrollwork.  I used several machines to accomplish this work.  I did not stain it but wanted to keep the oringinal wood. I just used a varnish to bring out the wood grain.


My shelf is setting on a bench that my hubby made last month.
Have a great Thursday.

I'm very impresses! Cutting those curves smoothly is really hard, and you did a great job!

ANN I LOVE it! I will have to give you the measurements for a corner shelf in Bob's office for his gem collection!

BTW thanks for posting my giveaway. I only have 34 entries...I guess that just makes the odds better for those interested.

I have one that is very vintage that belonged to my grandmother. It is dark wood and was called a what-not shelf. She had just cheap things on it, but I treasure it today.

Ann, it is just me again. My post today has nothing to do with me. It is all about my sister and her life.

Ann, that is a beautiful shelf! You have done such a great job and never would have know that this is only your second project! Love it!

Great shelf, you did a wonderful job! I checked out the vintage truck post and it looks like a lot of fun. I will definitely post my pictures when I get it set up. Have a wonderful weekend, Nan

You are doing beautiful work in your class!!!! These always make me think of Laura Ingalls Wilder's Little House books, because her mother, Caroline, had a little corner "what-not" shelf to hold special treasures.
