About This Project


I had a wall in our living room that was bare for almost 4 years. SO happy with the results of my "Ten Dollar Ledges"!!

Required Skill Level: 
Starter Project
Estimated Time Investment: 
An Hour or Two (0-2 Hours)
Finish Used: 
RUST-OLEUM, AMERICAN ACCENTS; Colonial Red Smooth Satin Finish. I'm a lazy painter, I didn't sand or prime my ledges and only applied one coat as I loved that I could still see the wood grain through the paint. (8oz can covered both ledges with one coat, still have half the can left!)
Estimated Cost: 


I was wanting to make a small one under my bathroom mirror, but wondered if it would be too bulky. Seeing yours, I can see they look pretty sleek and I am probably going to go for it. (if I don't like it, I am sure it will get use somewhere)

I love how you admit you are a lazy painter, I am getting more patient the more I am building...hehe

The colour you chose is really nice. They shelves look great on that wall, I am making some for a hallway with 1 x 3 instead to make them stick out less.
