Tips for Success
Before beginning this project, we measured the space that we planned to place the shelves. This allowed us to prepare for how much material to buy. In order to hang the two shelves we planned for, we needed eight brackets total. This is because we used four brackets per shelf. We could not find the brackets that would fit the railroad ties so we combined two brackets to form one. Then, we used 6 2 inch lag bolt screws per shelf to secure the ties to the brackets.
