My garage has been SO full of rehab projects that I have had neither the time nor the space to build anything for a while! Last week after I finally got most of what needed to be done…well, done…it moved into the house for a while and I squeezed out a few square feet of space to build.
I finished the top and legs with a custom gray/brown stain mix, but then I used a little ebony stain on the edges for a more weathered look.
My favorite part is this center shelf. I came across a whole bunch of 5” strips of plywood in the scrap pile at Lowe’s. I bought the whole lot of it for just such a project as this!
I ripped each strip in half, so mine are about 2.5” wide. I nailed a cleat around the inside of the shelf so I could lay the strips neatly in place. The fun part, of course, was using multiple stains for the plywood…I used ebony, golden pecan, mahogany, and dark walnut. Then a few of them got a wash of teal paint. There is no rhyme or reason to their placement…I just went with what looked good to me.
I’m really happy with how it turned out, and anxious to do something similar with the rest of the plywood!
Just have to clear space in my garage…again!
