Excellent project and a well-explained tutorial with good photos! I think this would be a very fun shelf to make and a very practical item that would be easy to place in your house. I like the way the blogger decorated the shelf with a nice display of books, a basket and a plant. Now, off to a garage sale or two to see what I can find! How nice that the blogger's mother-in-law gave her the corbels, that's the best way to make an affordable shelf-have the pieces gifted to you.

What a neat little project. I love how you can literally use this shelf inside, outside, and in just about any room of the house. Thank you for making the instructions super simple. I would have built the shelf and never thought of leaving an overhang for where the corbels join the board. I can see using this above my desk, in my kids room's, and the kitchen to spruce up an area that seems to be lacking something. Great post!
