I wanted a bookshelf for my living room, but I couldn't find one I liked so I decided to build one myself.
I added lettering to the top of the bookshelf to add some character and because it is, after all, our own little library.
I painted it red to match the color scheme of my living room.
Then I glazed it because I like the antique look of glaze.
Here's a close up of the glaze.
Here's the final product with books on it, all pretty in my living room.
