Last month I bought a new Ryobi miter saw and have been itching to do all the wood working projects. With scrap wood in my garage and Christmas coming up, I thought I would give a tree shelf a try. Mine was loosely based on this inspiration:
Like I said, it was my first try so I wanted to to work within my comfort zone which was common board, 45 degree angles and brad nails.
- common board
- brad nails
- white paint
- miter saw
- 9in x 4: one side 45 angle
- 9in x 2: both side 45 angle for top
- 14in straight
- 18in straight
- 24 straight
I also cut a few Christmas trees using scrap wood and the same 45 degree angle. These were just nailed together with brads and I will definitely try to improve upon them. they were painted with leftover gold spray paint and pink paint from my daughters room to match my office decor.
I hope this was helpful! Tag me in your projects.
Best, Melissa and Girls
