We've been attacking so many home improvements here: kitchen re-do, new interior doors, new front door, new cemented front steps...I feel like the list goes on forever. Because of all of those expenses some functional decor pieces have kind of fallen by the wayside. We've been shelf-less above the toilet in one of our bathrooms for a while now. Yesterday I thought, "Ok, enough is enough!" and decided to embrace my inner "Build Like A Girl" and make some plank shelves. I think in total it cost me around $11.00. Not too shabby.
I already had a 3/4" by 8" plank of pine in my garage so I just had to go buy some shelving brackets at my local Ace. These were $2.49 a pop and came in this ugly fake wood print. (I knew I had to paint them) I had some paint from another project and just decided to use that for the planks. I cut the wood, sanded, painted and distressed the edges a little bit. I then sprayed the shelving brackets with Rust-Oleum's Metallic Spray Paint in Espresso (I also had this from a previous project). I anchored the brackets to the planks and attached them to the wall. Wah-La! Instant shelves!
I think it beats a naked wall any day! What do you think of them?
