Easy Home Storage Projects - Building a Floating Wall Shelf When it comes to home storage, floating wall shelves are incredibly versatile. They can be added just about anywhere, from the garage to your living room, bathroom, bedrooms or kitchen. Line the shelves with storage baskets to conceal clutter, or display decorative items, childrens toys, or books. The options are virtually endless. Plus, floating shelves can be finished in a multitude of ways to accommodate any decor. Use a bright paint color to contrast the wall and have a modern pop, or use a classic wood stain to create a rustic, traditional feel. Creating floating wall shelves is such a simple carpentry project, that even a novice can tackle it. All you need for this project is wood, a tape measure, sandpaper, a leveler, a jig saw, L brackets, varnish, and wood stain or paint and paint brushes. When you are ready to go, simply follow these instructions: • First you must determine the shelving dimensions. The standard thickness for a shelf is 1", but you can create shelves of any length or width, depending on your needs and the space you have. • Once you have determined the dimensions, measure the wall space with your tap measure, transfer the measurement to the wood, and then cut the wood to the required length using the jig saw. • Use the sand paper to smooth out the jagged edge left behind by the jig saw. This will give your shelf a clean, smooth finish. If the wood is jagged on other edges, smooth those out as well. • Stain or paint the entire shelf before attaching it to the wall. Wood may require more than one coat of paint. Be sure to let the paint dry completely before applying a second coat. • Once the paint or stain is completely dry, apply varnish. This will give the shelf a protective finish that minimizes day-to-day wear and tear. If you want the shelf to be glossy, apply a second coat of varnish. You should gently sand the shelf between varnish coats to ensure a smooth finish. • Attach the L brackets to the shelf first. I recommend spacing them every 24" for a stronger, more stable shelf. • Now attach the shelf to the wall. I recommend using a leveler to ensure the shelf is perfectly even.
Corner Shelf Bookcase Whether in a spacious corporate office, a cubicle, or a home office, space is usually at a premium. It is essential to keep office space clean and organized, and a corner shelf unit can assist in that task. They are available in a variety of materials and colors, and provide much-needed extra storage space without taking up too much room. The corners of an office space are often underutilized. In many cases, they are available free space, but the awkward shape makes it difficult to use the space efficiently. A corner shelf solves this problem. The units are designed to specifically fit into a corner, and are available in many sizes. The shelves are a great place for storing a variety of items, from office supplies to computer equipment or books. If you are located in a cubicle at work, a cubicle accessory which will greatly enhance your storage abilities is a convenient corner shelf unit. Shelving units are available as either standalone pieces of furniture, or as individual shelves that must be hung up on the wall. When looking for a corner shelf unit, one will find that some are already assembled, while others come in a box and must be assembled after they are purchased. In many cases, the units that need to be assembled are less expensive and the time needed to put it together is usually minimal. Corner shelves are available in many colors, materials, and styles, making it possible to find one that will complement the décor of any office. Most units that require assembly are made of wood veneer, or other manufactured materials, while assembled units can easily be found in solid wood. Metal units can also be found, and may be a good fit for an informal office space where function trumps style. If customers or clients regularly visit an office, it may be worth investing in a higher quality corner shelf unit in order to present a professional image. Like most furniture, the shelves can be bought in a number of different stains; shelves made of manufactured material can also be purchased in colors such as white or black. The size of a shelving unit needed depends on the amount of additional storage space required. One can purchase a single corner shelf, or a shelving unit that extends from floor to ceiling and offers multiple shelves. No matter what size is bought, a corner shelf unit is a great piece of furniture to have in any office. It will expand your storage capabilities and will make the most of your limited office space.
