Floating Shelf

Submitted by sophie on Mon, 05/21/2012 - 00:09

I took the building ideas from Ana's shelf but made mine a lot bigger so that it snaked up the wall as boxes.
It was a really easy project to do - the most complicated parts were measuring out exactly where to make the cuts and keeping them straight with the jigsaw.
I attached my shelf to the wall using keyhole hangers rather than L brackets as suggested, as I wanted floating shelves where you can't see the hanging hardware.
Have a look at my blog for photos of the hanging hardware and more photos of the shelf.
