Sometimes when you have a big, blank wall that you're feeling sick of the logical thing to do is act impulsively! You call your husband, have him stop on the way home from work at the hardware store for brackets and wood, and then whip up some floating shelves the minute he gets home to spice the room up! I've realized I work best when I don't think things through too much:) What are the rules of thumb when it comes to shelf hanging, you might ask? I had to learn this lesson the hard way (which meant lots of holes in the wall!) There are two magical measurements you need to remember that will help ensure all of your shelf hanging expeditions are successful....
1. Don't hang anything below 54" from the ground.
2. Space the shelves 12-15" apart (from bottom of shelf to bottom of the next shelf).
That's all she wrote. You're welcome!
