  1. I’d love to see what they look like installed! Nice work!

  2. I will definitely post the finished closet when it’s all complete. I just hope these shelves live up to your expectations! *biting fingernails* Thanks for the comment!

  3. Looks great, I love the colors you used! One thing I do after “weathering” a board is run over the board with a 120 grit paper on my orbital sander. It helps let the grain show through.

  4. Thanks for the tip! I’ll definitely keep it in mind next time I tackle any more weathering.

  5. I Love your blog! I Love the way the wood turned out…great job! Do you have any advice for me on setting up my blog~ I love the way you’ve done yours! I find it confusing and I’m kind of stuck! *I’m a newbie! 😉

  6. Thank you so much! I, too, am a newbie as I’ve been blogging for less than a year, so not sure I’m the best person to ask. However, I will tell you that I thought of a concept for my blog layout before getting it set up. I still haven’t worked out all the kinks, so busy I was to get content on my site. I looked at your blog and the set up isn’t so bad. It really depends on what you are trying to achieve… think of how the reader will see it. Can the reader navigate it well? Can the reader find all the necessary information? Do you have links to your older posts? For now, I think your site is very user-friendly, so the appearance is really up to you. Play with the “appearance” in your dashboard and just click on everything to see what it does. That’s how I learned! Also, if you like the layout of another person’s blog, find out what template they used and see if that will work for you. I did a little customizing on my template, so it doesn’t look like someone else’s with the same template. Hope I’ve answered your question! Let me know if you have any others. Be happy to help. ~M.

  7. Thanks for the advice~ I took it! I played with the “appearance” and made a few changes! I had tried to figure things out and couldn’t, and your advice was Just what I needed…! 😀

  8. Excellent! Always happy to know that my advice helped. =) ~M.

  9. Great technique! Looks really good. I’ll have to try this if I ever get the chance.

  10. If you do, let me know how it turns out! ~M.

  11. love the color. i’m curious to see how it matched the rest of your room and the corresponding colors that you used. seems like you have a knack 🙂

  12. Ahh! You’re not the only one to have wondered that about these boards! I have really got to get to work on finishing that space! ~M.

  13. I’m not into barn board, but I definitely appreciate how well you documented this! If I’m ever inspired to try it yours are the instructions I’ll look for.

  14. Aw, thanks! That’s a great compliment! ~M.
