First start by cutting your board to the desired shelf length. I decided on a 5 foot shelf for this project. After cutting the board to length, sand it smooth with an electric sander. Then I distressed the board slightly by hitting it with the edges of a bracket. You can do as much distressing as you like. After, I sanded any rough edges that may have been created during the processes, I cleaned the excess sanding dust off and stained the board with a gray stain.
