Easy DIY shelves

Who needs extra storage? Everyone, I guess. So I made those wall shelves to organize the bathroom…but you can use them in any room! They will work great for toys, dishes, craft supplies…
The best part is that they are super simple to build, you just need a few planks! You can have a look on Bob Vila for the complete instructions! Let’s organize the house…well at least trying to!

Materials you will need to build a wall shelf

The corner braces will remain slightly visible, so you can buy some the right color or spray paint them the same shade as your wall before screwing them on the wall.

If you want to build some box shelves here goes some indications. I used 6in. x 1in. x 8ft planks and cut them at the following dimensions: 2 pieces of 4 ft to make the top and bottom of the box, and two pieces of 9 inches to make the box sides.

Sand the plank edges, and screw the sides with the top and bottom. The sides are placed in-between top and bottom and fixed with three screws on each end. You can also add some wood glue before screwing to strengthen the assembly. Sand the box, stain, or paint them the way you like.

To hang them on the wall,  screw a 2 1/2 bracket on each box top corner and screw them on the wall. And done, the perfect storage to display your collectibles.

If you want a more detailed tutorial, with step by step pictures, don’t hesitate to have a look at the one I wrote for Bob Vila. And remember you can easily adapt the box shelf dimension to your needs. What do you think? What would you like to display on these shelves?

    I made some like these a few years ago for glassware,a Kombucha bottle shelf, and a spice rack in my kitchen, but I didn't like the look of the corner bracket, so I painted the part touching the wall the same color as the wall, and the part touching the shelves the same color as the shelves. They almost dissappear this way and I like them much better. I love your angel votive holders. …think I will give them a try!
