The bright orange pops against the old beadboard wall.  
My interpretation with a few slight modifications.
Heres the shelf I was asked to replicate featured on the cover of a home magazine. 
The wood used to construct it was originally from a 100 year old shutter. The old paint was removed and then it was repainted and antiqued.

Several years ago there was a beautiful shelf featured on the cover of a magazine. A friend asked if I could replicate it...so I did. Now it hangs in her incredible 1800s farmhouse kitchen.

The simplicity and beauty of the first photo is magazine worthy! Once again I can't say enough about your talent and ability to create something that looks like it has been around for decades!
