DIY Two Layer Shelves

Hi there, just sharing my diy shelves today.  These shelves were super easy to make and I think they add a little character too.

I used 1x2, 1x4, and 1x6 pine boards.  1x4's are for the back plate, 1x2's are for the braces, and 1x6's are for the shelf.  First I cut the back plates. I wanted two shelves but I think you could do as many as you wanted.

Just to rough them up a bit, I used this scraper and gouged the edges a little.  Then sanded them to smooth it out.

Then it was time to put it all together.

I used wood glue and a nail gun to do this.  It worked great. Then I stained them with an espresso stain and a spray poly for the top coat.

Both sides of the window.

 I love how they turned out.  Very simple, anybody could make these.

Have a good day!
