Floating Shelves

Here is the finished product of our $6.00 floating shelves. I got the idea out of a book I got from the library but I found it here too. We found the hollow core door in the clearance doors for $1.00 at Menards. Then we cut down a 2x4 for the brackets. Then with some lag nuts into studs they are pretty sturdy. We used screws to secure the shelves to the bracket instead of nails to make it movable otherwise they would have been permanent. They are for my oil can collection but as you can see I am missing 3/4 of the collection. The maddening part of it all is now we can't find the other 3/4 anywhere. Of course that is how it usually works out. We won't find them till we move again I am sure.
