2. Painted shelf with carved supports

One way to age a painted shelf is to sand off some paint in spots to expose the natural wood underneath and make it look older than it really is. Carved wooden supports give any shelf a more rustic look. A rustic shelf like this is perfect for any space you would want the opposite look of modern plastic perfection.
