Up cycle cabinet doors into floating shelves

I removed 2 cabinet doors, 32" x 12" x ¾ thick. They look are plywood. I would like to make them into floating shelves in the bathroom. All the DIY ideas I find build the shelves from scratch. Any ideas or advice? Thanks.

    Floating shelves are tricky because they need to be strong enough in the thickness of the wood to hold on to the wall and then to bear the weight of what is put on them. Plywood isn't usually very strong when drilled into the side/thickness part of it. It wouldn't normally be thick enough for this purpose either. I think you will need to use brackets.

    look for salvage corbels. Bet they would look good as the brackets.
