I need all the space in here that I can find, so the top of the tank is space I need to use, but see all those curves, it's hard to sit something on the tank and not have it slide around. A shelf is what I needed.
I found this piece of wood at Michaels that is just the right size, so I am going to embellish it a bit.
First a coat of white spray paint. (Yes, my lawn is looking really bad with all this hot weather.) Here's a tutorial of how I did mine.
When your piece is thoroughly dry,you need to sand it down lightly and then steel wool it for a really smooth finish.
Be sure to countersink your knobs. You want the back to be totally flat.
If you missed my Show Off & Inspire yesterday, be sure to check it out. We got a home tour of one of our fabulous blogger friends from down under. Carolyn at Desire Empire has graciously shared her home with us and it is to die for. I want to live there.
