Ok, I've tackled furniture pieces before and each time I say "never again" but this time I mean it.
There are so many things I don't know about large pieces, and this one has metal as a main element and I'm entering uncharted waters.
Here are just a few of the phrases I've uttered in the past few days
In my own words at the time...
"What do you mean these nuts don't work with these bolts they are the same diameter? what's a thread count?
What's a lock washer and why do I need one?
Why does this thing keep falling over?
Why don't these holes line up?
I'm giving up?
This is crazy, this will never look good and I've wasted my money?
To late to turn back now!
I guess I'll finish it and if I hate it I'll just use it in my booth."
On the up side, I've started distressing and staining the shelves, and I found a great spray paint that will really help this piece look less like an erector set project.
I need to get some more bolts, nuts, washers etc. Who knew there were so many different kinds.
And I found these great shelf brackets that I'm going to use like this.
I sure hope this project comes out good but heck it's just a shelf and life is short so as I said before, If it doesn't work in my house I'll just use it in my booth and stick a price tag on it.
Hope to show you more tomorrow. Maybe I'll get the metal parts painted tomorrow.
Pop over to Gracie's Cottage for a fun give away that is just my style.
