Contrasting Shelf

A shelf I finished a couple days ago for the babies room…wife hasn’t decided what wall to hang it on so I took a picture of it hanging from a non-matching hanging piece (the mahogany). I like how these hanging shelves have turned out and think I might put a few more together. Save space and look pretty unique. I used birch and maple in the construction.

Very nice shelves. Is birch a dark wood or did you stain it? If you stained it, what did you use.

Jean, the birch is the light wood and the dark wood is roasted maple. I didn’t use any stain on this shelf because the maple provided the contrast i was looking for.
