Have you watched “The Leftovers” on HBO?

We have.  It’s disturbing.  I “think” I like it??  It’s about the leftover people after an “event” that caused a percent of the population to disappear.  We’ve watched 2 seasons and I still don’t understand.  I’m hoping it one of those shows that purposely keeps viewers in the dark.  Otherwise, I just not getting it.

What I “do” get is the leftover DIY projects.

The shelf above was made using the leftovers from the Bella shelf.

Two boards, the triangle pieces and good quality wood glue was all I used.  No nails required!!

I aged the boards using the tea and vinegar technique.

The dark wax I made a couple of weeks ago was applied to the edges and rough areas.  Then painted completely with grey chalked based paint.

Then the entire shelf was waxed using the homemade clear wax I made.

Now for more leftovers.  DIY projects in grey are added to our leftover mantel.

I even displayed the used leftover grey paint brush…since I didn’t clean it!!

If I could understand those leftover people like I do leftover DIY projects, I just might watch the next season. :/
