Build a Rustic Floating Shelf

Using mental fortitude I set out to build a rustic floating shelf today. Well, it doesn’t actually float…that was a lie. The shelf slides over a bracket built from 1 x 2’s that are secured to the wall with 2″ screws…which gives the viewer the ILLUSION of it floating.

I violated your trust and for that I’m SORRY. If it makes you feel any better you can build your own for under $25!

…are we cool now?
