They are SO easy to DIY and inexpensive. I knew that I wanted to use them in Ivie’s Bedroom makeover, but I wanted them to feel just a little more special, here’s what you’ll need:

Shelf Brackets
Hex Screws (1/2″ for the corner braces and to attach the shelves to the brackets and 1 1/2″ to attach the brackets to the wall)
4″ Corner Brace L Bracket
Gold Spray Paint

Start by painting everything gold! Make sure that you do this far enough in advance that you can let it cure for at least 24 hours. (This part is super important to ensure that the paint doesn’t scratch off) A trick for painting the screws is to use an old box and poke them in so that they are standing up and you can hit all sides without marring the paint.

After the paint has dried, attaching the braces to the shelf is cake. just drill a pilot hole before you put on your screws so that you don’t split the wood.

When you are mounting your brackets to the wall, make sure that they are nice and level. Once great thing about this style of self is that you can always mount them on a stud because you’re attaching the shelf after.

Use a bit of painters tape to mark the depth of your screw on the drill bit so that you don’t accidentally drill all the way through the wood shelf.
