Do It Yourself Bracket Shelf
Recently I wanted to create a super easy shelf with inexpensive materials – wood and brackets. Let’s see what I came up with!
Step One – Cut Your Wood
Cut your wood to the length you want. I used a 1×6 piece and stained it with Minwax Special Walnut. You can use ANY WOOD, ANY STAIN, cut ANY SIZE.
Step Two – Grab Brackets
You can find any L-Shape Bracket from Amazon or Home Depot. I found some 4 inch long brackets in the door handle section of Home Depot. Make sure the ones you pick are strong enough to hold the wood size you used.
Step Three – Install Brackets
Find the studs in your wall and place the bracket on wall. Use a pencil to mark holes if you can’t find a stud, so you add an anchor first.
Add your screws.
Step Four – Add Your Shelf
Place your shelf on the brackets and measure to make sure it’s even on both sides. Drill the small screws that are included with your brackets into the underneath of your shelf.
That’s it! You did it! So easy, so inexpensive – anyone can do it.
