Good Job, I like the way the wood carries through to the deck outside.

That's a nice looking little shelf, Joey. Are those braces pinned to the wall or just resting against it?

I mount a lot of my shelves that way, secured at top and rest on the sides, my vertical pieces usually rest over the studs running beside the window so the sheet rock is supported, no need for screws through them then. Less holes to fill in the future. The wife changes decorations too much, lol.
