Make your own decorative shelf with hooksPosted: Updated:
Ready to get organized and create something not only useful but beautiful? Here's an easy project you can do at home. Home Depot's Debbie Hernandez shows us how to make a decorative shelf with hooks.
Materials and Tools:
-One 2x6x8 board cut to 30"
-One 2x8x8 board cut to 26"
-Wood Casing cut to fit
-Paint or Stain
-2 1/2" screws
-1 1/4" brad nails
-150 grit Sandpaper
-Brad Nailer or Hammer
-Cut wood to recommended lengths
(Adjust measurements to fit space if needed)
-Use a line of wood glue and a clamp to position the 2"x6"x30" board on top of the 2"x8"x26", leaving 2" on each side.
-Use a drill to pre-drill holes (prevents the wood from splitting) and to drive the 2 1/2" wood screws through the top of the 2"x6" board into 2"x8" board.
-Measure and mark the wood casing to fit the front and the sides of the 2"x8" board. The casing should be cut at a 45 degree angle. The front piece will be 26" (short point to short point) and the sides will be measured and cut to fit.
-Use a line of wood glue and a Brad nailer with 1 1/4" Brad nails to attach the casing to the 2"x8" board.
-Sand where needed.
-Finish the shelf with paint or stain. Let dry.
-Attach hooks along the front of the 2"x8" board.
-Hang shelf into a stud or use anchors.
