Cedar Shelf Above the Couch

I told you the other day how I took a project from its Pinterest beginnings
from I Am Momma Hear Me Roar
to finish in roughly 24 hours (a miraculous feat). 

It took me another couple of days to actually put some things up on the shelf.  I’m still not finished (I need pics in that collage frame), but the great thing about a shelf like this is that you can change it up to your heart’s content.
Cedar Post Shelf Above the Couch

My sweet boy was home from school sick today (Monday).  Sad smile
I went to JoAnn’s and picked out a couple of fabric patterns.  Did you know that you can order by the half yard?  I just learned that!  I LOVE this pattern.
And the “H” is my favorite!  I bought one of those naked wood letters from JoAnn’s and stained it when I got home with some “Kona” colored stain that I had at the house (took 5 minutes).  I LOVE the way it turned out.  It matches my floors perfectly.093
This is the other fabric I bought.  I don’t know if you can tell, but it’s textured.  The green and white areas are kind of velvety.  It’s so cool looking. 

Anyway, that’s that.  Winking smile  I’ll probably mess with it until I’m completely happy with it (still needs a few tweaks), but I’m pretty happy with it right now (save the empty frames).
Pin It
(If you like it then you shoulda put a pin on it!)

    1. Kendra, I'm sorry that I just saw this! I got it from Lowe's - a cedar post that I cut and polyurethaned. The brackets were from Lowe's, too.


I love to hear from you!
