Comin’ in a day late on Calling It Home & House Beautiful’s #oneroomchallenge week 2. It’s kind of a miracle these got done because our schedule this month is so ugly, it gives me daily chest pain. But on Monday we ran to Jenny’s while she was at work and the twins were at dance, and installed these babies in about one hour.
Oh, and my camera would not work. Becaue why wouldn’t a brand new camera work when ya need it most??? So these are hurried iphone shots 🙁 But the good news is that Jenny loves them!
Instructions for installing open shelving are all over Pinterest but the general is: find & mark studs, install with a level. We used these simple black brackets from Home Depot at $6.86 a piece.
And this 1x12x6′ common board at $15.35 each. I just added one coat of stain and then lightly sanded to give it a rustic, weathered look.
The total cost of this project was $116.28 and once Jenny styles it, you’ll see how it looks more like a million bucks.
Check ya later, folks, off to another day of madness with my favorite crazy kids. Taking appications for: life coach, personal assistant.
