I love the look of floating shelves – you know the ones: they look like they’re magically protruding out of the walls:
But have you ever hung one up yourself? Have you? I did (kind of). I cried and got so frustrated. I drilled a hole just 1/8″ off, and the shelf wouldn’t hook on to the screws and hang properly.
Thank goodness my handy husband came to the rescue to give me a few pointers and console me in this low time.
I’m writing this post to save you from going down the road I traveled down. Here is how to actually hang these floating shelves with NO TEARS, and lots of accomplishment and pride.
