|Basement pine shelves|
As I have worked on the house I have taken a shelf from the basement wall and used them in various rooms. And over that time, I have discovered a way to age the wood and take the yellow/orange tinge of the varnished pine away and give it a more aged patina, like in our guest bathroom.

I loved it so much, I ended up with the narrow shelves in all of our bathrooms. I think the wood adds a nice warm touch to all the painted surfaces.

After using all the narrow shelves, I still had all to the wider boards left over. Some I used in my daughters closet (we all should have pretty closets),
|Harlequin pattern and wood shelves in closet|
and some are used as mattress boards on my son's bed.
And even with those uses, I still have at least one long board still available for use. My plan is to incorporate it in the armoire update for the basement. But that reveal is for later.
Friday I will show you how I age the boards.
