A Surf Board shelf

Here we go! Our first post on our new website. This week I installed a shelf that has been a bit in the making. We were asked to come up with an idea for a shelf or shelving for a living room. It was an awkward space behind the sofa. This house, like many in the city, has a chimney bump in the living room. These awkward bumps make for difficult furniture placement, but optimal shelving locations. So we started by coming up with a few rough ideas just to see what concepts would stick.HalftoneCurvedSupport SolidbackedU Stackeredsteelbrackets


From there, we stuck with the half painted,Solidbacked half natural finish and the slow curve of the second image which let the light from the window come in uninterrupted. Next revision.
