The wall of your home is the canvas you use to express yourself. You can show off your style or your kids, you can create ambiance and set the tone for a room – but what to do with all that space? Sure the obvious things are to paint and hang pictures or art; just don’t forget that shelving can add depth, dimension and functionality to a room.
Specifically, floating shelves are becoming quite popular due to the versatility of where they can be placed and the aesthetic they provide – and what you can use to make one. You don’t have to spend much more than a little elbow grease to make one of your own either. Hunt around your antique store, thrift shop, salvage store, or even your garage for things you can make into a shelf – and as you will see in the video below, you don’t have to be constrained to just planks and boards either.
