This shelf is made from solid 3/4" pine with cast iron star brackets and vintage (80+ year old) iron coat hooks. The hooks have been carefully cleaned leaving some of the original rust color and black paint...then coated with a clear satin poly coat. Detailed and heavy construction to last a lifetime...it is about 34" long and 9 " deep and 10 1/2" tall. Stained and sealed a medium dark color with a shop made center plywood (beadboard) insert. This shelf will mount to the wall very easily and very secure with wooden cleats (French Cleats) which are included. It is as simple as attaching a small board to the wall and hanging the shelf on it.
