Use a drill to hang the deck cleat to the wall. Try to get them in a stud if you can! Repeat twice for your two hanging cleats.
DIY NAUTICAL ROPE SHELVING
This simple DIY wooden shelving has a nautical touch that is perfect for any small space! The combination of wood + rope is simple but interesting. The hanging shelves are strong enough to hold a variety of nick nacks and even plants!
Add rope to the cleats and let hang, 2 ends hanging down from each.
You should have your boards cut and stained. They need a hole drilled in each corner.
Add your board and tie a knot underneath each. Pull the rope tight for a secure knot.
Continue moving down to hang your 3 shelves. Be sure to check yourself as you go to make sure that it is staying even and level.
Trim the excess rope and enjoy! I actually used a lighter to burn the end of each rope to keep it from unravelling, as well.
