Why are open shelves so cool? They are an efficient storage and are great for small rooms: they don’t require much space and don’t make the space look cluttered. The two main things you need for such shelves is wood, maybe reclaimed, and good and durable brackets. Choose the shape and size of the wood, cut it and stain, you may need several layers of stain. Let it dry and then attach the brackets to the wall, and then shelves to the brackets. Make such shelves for hallways, kitchens, pantries and dining rooms and enjoy your work! The tutorials below will help you to do that.
