Happy Monday, Ramblers! I know I usually post on Thursdays, but it took me a while to make these shelves and edit the video, so I'm a little late! Anyways, we are building some shelves! Grab your tool belts, your DIY skills, and join me as we drill some holes into the wall. Since I made a video showing and explaining everything I did, I'm not going to write it out. However, I will leave the links to all the materials I used.
Here are all the materials I used to make these! Some of these I had to buy, but some of the tools I already had, such as the drill and some of the screws. In total, this project cost me about $180. However, I get to keep all the tools and I didn't use up all of the stain and screws. This is also still cheaper than if I had bought pre-made shelves and brackets. To have everything ready for mounting would have been at least $200-300!
4 Shelf Brackets
Varathane Pre-Stain Conditioner
Varathane Sunbleached Stain
Paint Can Opener
3/32 Drill Bit
Drywall Screws (6 x 2)
220 Grit Sandpaper
120 Grit Sandpaper
Plank of knotty pine wood (3/4" x 10" x 72") which was then cut to the measurements I wanted by the employees!
I ended up with pieces of scrap wood and two shelves (3/4" x 8" x 30). You can find the same plank of wood at Home Depot, Lowe's or your local lumber yard.
260-Piece Screw and Plug Set
Frame (8 x 10 w/ Mat)
Alright I believe that is everything! Let me know what you guys thought of the shelves and the video!
Until next time, ramble on and happy holiday season!
