Kitchen Mantle shelves

Here is a project I've been working on for a week or two, They are Mantle style shelves for our kitchen. I'm delaying the process a bit because I'm scared to glaze them in fear of ruining them. I've never done any glazing before but I guess if I really messed one up I could just remake it, right:)?

This is the look my wife wants on this test piece. I sealed the wood first then applied the glaze hoping that I could wipe away more from the larger surfaces leaving only heavier amounts in the deepest points. Overall I think it came out pretty good but, like I said I'm still nervous to go to town on the shelves.

Aren't I just a big chicken?
