When I started thinking about redoing the master bath I found this awesome picture.
I wish I had saved the location I found this. I have checked my Pinterest boards and done an image search with no luck. If you find where it came from, please let me know and I will gladly credit it to the source.
Annnnywayyy… I loved the rustic look and knew it would be great in our very builder basic bathroom.
This is a photo of our home when we were looking at it to purchase. The great piece of furniture did not stay with the house. It is just a very boring sage green space.
As luck would have it, my
junker collector mom picked up a small section of fencing for me. It was the perfect size! I wanted thicker shelves on mine so I modified the design above to make it more what I wanted.
I decided I could take this on all on my own. I am trying to do more work on my own so that my Hubby has time to do what he loves. I did not end up having the skills I needed.
He did have to help me connect the air nailer (I tried, but that bugger wouldn’t go in), he put in the screws for the 2X4’s, he ripped the front boards on the table saw because it scares me, and he volunteered to move chop saw for me.
The steps are simple.
Cut three 2X4’s about a half inch narrower than the width of the section of fencing.
Figure out where you want the shelves to go, then screw the 2X4 in from the back side of the fencing section so that the wide part of the 2X4 sticks out from the fencing.
Cut 5 sections of fencing planks to length.
3- the length of the 2X4 plus the additional length to go to the edge of the siding
2- small sections to cover the ends
Hubby ripped one board length in half with the table saw to make the shelf more narrow.
I air nailed them together pretty quickly.
See the tops of the fence pickets? I liked them, but our rescue dog, Lumi, did not. She chewed one of the pickets off while we weren’t watching. It had to be chopped off even. I like the result even better, but don’t tell Lumi. She was in big trouble.
Here it is, hanging in the bathroom.
I love the results.
I hope I can learn to to more on my own.
Let me know what you think,
Have a great day.
