This past week I’ve been working on a ‘ute’ bookshelf for my son. I used pine boards from Bunnings which I stained with black paint and water. For the door I used grey paint & water, like a wash effect with a rag. The lights are also from Bunnings, everything was from Bunnings. :smile:

Took me about a week to make :smile:

Welcome to the Bunnings Workshop community @lmorales41.

 

It's great to have you join us. Let me mention @prettyliving so she is alerted to you kind feedback and to see if she has some images of the construction. Were you interested in building something like this? It would be great to follow along with the process and we would encourage you to let us know if you need some assistance or would like to share. I trust you'll find loads of inspiration on Workshop from our very talented members for all your projects around the home and garden.
