Quick Project…Floating Shelves!

Our living room is nice, with nice pieces of furniture, but we have a large unoccupied wall space. So my wife and I decided to hang up some floating shelves.

Floating shelf materials. I think the company forgot to ship the set of screws they said came with it, so I used my 3 inch construction screws that I used to put in the pegboard.

The process was fairly simple:

  • Find the wall studs
  • Level the brackets and screw the holders into the studs
  • Slide in the wood slats
  • Voila!
Floating shelves! With some awesome cheap fake plants we got from Target!

I like little projects like this because it is a project that can take 20 minutes to install, but add a lot to the room (kind of like my pegboard project seen below).

One of my first projects…a pegboard on the outside of my kitchen to hold some pots, pans, and utensils that were clogging up the cabinets.

Plus they look great with the new chandelier and some fake plants from Target that we couldn’t resist buying.

Do you have floating shelves in your space? What do you use them for? until next time…
