Corrigan Shelves


Very similar to the Ferguson Shelves, but made in stained pine and clear Barr's bottles a la Irn Bru. The clear benefit here being that since Barr's bottles can be returned to almost every corner shop in Scotland for a deposit back, they can also be bought as a supply of uniform, strong bottles for merely 30p each. A lot easier than delving around in glass bins, or waiting to collect a bunch of wine bottles. The dark stain wasnt quite as great as I'd hoped, the Osmo stain itself is a good enough product but going from very pale pine to a very dark stain didn't give the best finish. to the wood. Less extreme staining required in the future!
