My client needed some storage for DVD's around her fireplace. She wanted to bring some color into the space which was otherwise white. For this project I chose Cherry and used a brown mahogany gel stain with a semi-gloss clear coat. The shelves have an internal structure that makes them supremely rigid and able to be securely fastened to the mounting cleat which was anchored into several studs. Each cleat was actually able to be anchored into 4 studs. I was quite happy about that.
