Pottery Barn DIY Plank Shelf

I built this Pottery Barn inspired planked wood shelf for my Wife's first Mother's Day. using several 1, 2, and 3 by 1s. I started by making the frame and then cutting boards to fill in the gaps. Once I had all of the puzzle pieces in place I drilled pocket holes on the back of the larger pieces to provide support to the shelves so it can hold a load (wine bottles, clocks etc.) Then I finished each individual piece and placed it in its correct location. Using several clamps to glue the smaller pieces together. Finally I hung the shelf in our dining room using a french cleat (Hobby Lobby $6 or $7).
