This DIY was a relatively easy woodworking project and it's made a huge impact in our space. Check out the full blog post HERE.
We built these chunky, rustic-looking DIY floating shelves wayyyy back in September of last year to fill a weird entryway space in our house .
They look amazing and really give that empty area some character, plus they tie in perfectly with our DIY fireplace mantel on the other side of the room.
BUT, we had some issues.
When we made them, we didn’t have a lot of the tools and knowledge we do now, so they weren’t as structurally sound as they could be and sagged forward a little too much for comfort.
It was always on the list to fix them now we own a table saw and pocket hole jig, but getting our house ready to sell is really the kick we needed to get it done.
They’re so sturdy now and I feel confident being able to leave them for the next owners to enjoy without someone putting a voodoo curse on our name when they crash in the middle of the night.
