11. The DIY Floating shelving Idea from Oak Wood
Hello, my fellow clutter conquerors!
Here, Hannah will guide you through the mystical world of small living room organization with a little-known secret weapon: the “DIY Simple Wall Shelving Idea”! So, grab your tools, and let’s embark on this hilarious journey to decluttering bliss.
First things first, we’re going to choose our materials wisely. Forget pine – we’re going for oak because we need a shelf that can bear the weight of our precious trinkets without buckling under pressure. No one wants a shelf that pines for more strength!
Now for the step-by-step instructions. You’ll need three boards with widths of 2, 6, and 12 inches. And because two is always better than one, we’re doubling down on the storage fun! Cut all the boards in half like a samurai chef slicing sushi.
Next, pre-drill and screw the 1×6 to the 1×12 board, creating a storage alliance that’s built to last. Then, nail the 1×2 board to the front of the 1×12, adding a touch of flair to our functional creation.
Finally, let’s make that shelf shine!
Sand it down smoother than a baby’s bottom and apply a stain and semi-gloss polyurethane coat to make it sparkle.
And there you have it, folks! A simple yet brilliant DIY shelf that’ll have your living room looking sleek and organized in no time. Remember, when life gives you clutter, make shelves – and let the good times “roll”!
