In an attempt to make my room more loverly this morning,
I made a couple ladder shelves to put up on the sides of my pretend headboard.
Wanna make one too? It's easy, here's what you'll need:
(2) 4'X4'' boards
(3) 4''X12'' boards
(3) 1''X12'' boards
If you prefer to have pre-drilled holes in your hanging boards, drill those first!
I used a countersink bit just in case I want to cap the screw holes.
To be honest, I probably won't ever get around to that.
It just happened to be the bit in the drill press.
Next measure and mark where you would like to put your shelves.
I measured and put a mark at 10'', 24'' and 38'' on both of my 4' boards.
Of course you will want to use a straight edge to draw your lines.
If your shelves don't match up exactly, you're going to be hating life.
Time to assemble! Put a little wood glue on your one inch board
and nail it to your 4''X12'' board
After you're done with all 3 shelves, glue and nail the pieces to the sides
by matching them up to your neatly drawn lines.
Now you're ready to paint and put them up on the wall!
See, I told you it was easy!
Now I have that loverly song stuck in my head.
I'm going to have to get it stuck in yours as well.
