While I was making her shelves, I decided to make a few for "A's" room as well.
This is what I used:
- Metal brackets to hold the floating shelf (thrift store $.50)
- Outdoor wood from Home Depot (8x2)
- White Primer 2x Cover
- White Paint
I had Home Depot cut up the wood into 2-ft long pieces. Then I painted the brackets and wood over the next week. After a few coats, I assembled the shelves and scheduled with her a time to install them.
It was a simple project. I would have made them a bit more decorative but they are displayed in an casual family-style sun-room and thus it felt like less was more. - Rejoicing in the Present
