Before we continue on to the final step, because I didn’t stain this shelf completely, I did my finish before installing the back boards. For this I chose to white wash the three back panels with Rust-Oleum’s Calked Paint in Linen White. I slighted watered down the paint, then using a rag simple wiped the paint on the boars. For the frame I used Rust-Oleum wheat stain. I applied the stain with a foam brush, let it sit for a couple of minutes, then wiped clean with a stain rag. Once all is dry you can continue on to step 3.
I used a piece of scrap 1×4 and ripped it down the middle on a 45 to create my own french cleat for hanging.
