Floating wall shelves are incredibly versatile when it comes to home storage. They can be added almost anywhere from the garage to your living room, bathroom, bedroom, or kitchen. Line shelves with storage baskets to hide clutter or display decorative items, children’s toys, or books. The possibilities are nearly unlimited. In addition, floating shelves can be finished in different ways for any decor. Use a glossy color to contrast the wall and give it a modern touch, or use a classic wood stain for a rustic, traditional feel.

standard shelf thickness is 1 “. However, you can create shelves of any length and width depending on your needs and the space available. Once you have the dimensions determined, measure the wall space with your tap measurement, transfer the measurement to the wood, then use the jigsaw to cut the wood to the required length. Use the sandpaper to smooth the jigsaw’s jagged edge. This gives your shelf a clean, smooth finish. If the wood is uneven on other edges, smooth it out too. Color or paint the entire shelf before attaching it to the wall. Wood can require more than one coat of paint. After the paint or stain is completely dry, apply the varnish. This gives the shelf a protective finish that minimizes daily wear and tear. If you want the shelf to be shiny, apply a second coat of varnish. You should gently sand the shelf between layers of varnish to ensure a smooth finish.

First, attach the L brackets to the shelf. Now attach the shelf to the wall. I recommend using a straightener to make sure the shelf is perfectly level.
