We needed a space to store bathroom supplies, such as extra toilet paper, toothbrushes, & hair accessories in our tiny powder room. We used the space above the toilet to create floating shelves to hold all the necessities.

We began by making wooden braces & nailing them into the wall.
Then we cut some finished plywood for the shelves & my husband used a router to create the cap for the front of the shelves. Depending on how think you want the shelves, you could probably use a piece of trellis wood for the end.
Next, we installed the top & bottoms of the shelves by nailing them to the braces. Finally, we nailed the fronts to the shelves.
Floating shelves provide lots of storage in a tiny bathroom.

    I love the way floating shelves look - not cumbersome and space hogging like regular shelves. You and your man did an excellent job.
