As you may recall, I mentioned last week that I wanted to ditch this glass display case for the safety of my little man and put some floating shelves here instead.
I'll go through a supply list at the final reveal, but I basically followed Whitney's tutorial at Shanty 2 Chic that can be found here.
I had to make a few adjustments for two reasons. One, we don't have a nail gun or a Kreg Jig. And two, I want the edge to be pretty close to the wall, so we'll need to build them before attaching them to the wall (Whitney pretty much built them on the wall).
I began by using chalk and a measuring tape to draw an outline of where the shelves would go.
It's kind of impossible to see in this picture without hurting your eyes haha, but I started with the top one and them spaced them 13" apart.
My shelf length is 29" so the long 2x3 is cut at 27.5" (subtract 1.5" because of the side trim) and the smaller ones are cut at 7.75" (the shelf top minus the width of the first 2x3).
Eeek! I'm so excited to get these babies on the wall :)
Hopefully we'll have them on the wall and all prettied up by next week. Hopefully. :)
