My New Crock Shelf
I am very proud of my hubby. He did a great job on this. I asked him to make it out of imperfect boards and to make at least one board smaller and this is what he did. It took him about 3 hours to make it. I decorated it with things I already had in the house I had been collecting just for this. Of course I had to copy CS on how to decorate it! I didn't think my husband and I could get it in the house after it was done. It must have weighed 400 pounds! I made him screw it to the wall just to be safe in case one of the grand babies decided to climb it. Wow, it was big and heavy. I used the oil you put on a butcher block table. It gave it the extra old look. It dried within hours and made it a little smoother so it could be dusted. Without any treatment, it was too ruff to dust it.
