Building a Display Mantle

My kiddos had been trying to persuade me to build a mantle for displays at my craft sale.  I truly wasn't inspired to build anything.  To be honest I was quite overwhelmed with all that I needed to do to get ready for the sale; I was not wanting to add any more projects to my list.
Until....
Two days before my sale, I came across this shelf and BOOM!  My creativity kicked in.  My son and I went out to the garage and found some trim that was given to me and some wood scraps. :) I also remembered that I had asked my son to take some hardware off of an old door. Now it was time to put it together and paint.
I used Annie Sloan's Graphite and waxed it with dark wax only.  I knew that Graphite was not going to be black enough for me.  I truly love the way it turned out.
It is perfect!
I hope you all have a very
 Happy Thanksgiving!
