Let's Pretty-fy those Shelves

Remember my powder room shelves that I made a few weeks back?
I really, really wanted to do more to the shelves.  The plain fronts were looking so generic to me, but mitered cuts were terrifying me.  After I posted a photo of this on Facebook, two of my friends encouraged me to go for it.  So... I did.  It took a few weeks, but I did it.

So, one miter box and saw kit, some inexpensive small trim work, and a little extra paint...

It took just one afternoon.

And here are the results...
Ahhh... now they look more "finished"

A corner shot.

Up close.... so much prettier than a plain 1x12" edge.

What do you think?  Is it more finished now?


  1. They look fabulous! Very professional! I'm scared of mitre-ing too!

  2. Way to be brave! Paid off. :) Thanks so much for linking up at I Gotta Create! <3 Christina
