This was made of a headboard and foot board.  I had glass shelves already. The legs pieces that were chopped off were also reused for shelf brackets and feet.

One of my regular customers asked me to take her Mother's and Grandma's  headboard /footboard and make something.  After the bench idea, wall art we came to the idea of shelves. I measure it all out and it was near perfect for the project.  I came across some glass shelves someone gave me after a store remodel. Now it is a one of a kind curio cabinets.  I managed to use almost all of the cut off pieces in one fashion or another on the project.  The cut off footboard legs be came bottom legs.  The headboard legs and extra wood became the bottom shelf for support and shelf brackets.  She has another pair for me to do this year. Tip:  Orange Oil!  It takes wood finishes and brings the varnish back to life and hides the scratches.
