We love making our shelves and we also love finishing them for you. We imagine you opening the box and your eyes lighting up as you see the finished shelf for the first time, ready to go straight on to your wall.
But we're going to let you in to a little secret - finishing the shelf is actually pretty fun. There's something incredibly satisfying about applying oil to a shelf you've just hand sanded, and watching the grain "pop" as it drinks the oil in for the first time. So we thought we should share some of the fun part, rather than keep it all to ourselves, and that's when we came up with the "Do-it-Yourself" Shelf Kit.
We also thought that not only is this perfect for you wood oiling enthusiasts out there, but also what a cool gift it would make for a loved one. A DIY kit where the board is already cut to size (90cm, approx 3ft), but your giftee/you get to do the fun part.
So why not treat your other half, parent, neighbour, dentist, or all of the above to a wonderfully "hands-on" gift (instead of a pot plant, yet again - at least this will give them something to put the pot plants on).
