Re: Bathroom ALMOST done, need help with shelves!!


thanks! yeah i didnt want it to look like a medicine cabinet. biggest problem with that??? the back wall of the medicine cabinet is the reverse-side of the drywall of the room behind the bathroom, which is a bedroom.... so if i forget and hang a picture in the bedroom in the wrong spot, ill be screwing right into my medicine cabniet!!! loll..



i think im going to use heavy iron L brackets to hold large wood slabs , that are about 14Wx12D, ill see if i can find a picture for you.

some people find using black pipe, or rigid conduit makes good brackets too. can get caps, 90's, T's, etc... gives that 'industrial' look

Like these... After seeing the one with the Patron bottle, I am going to make one this weekend... Google images for 'pipe shelf' possibilities are endless...

Re: Bathroom ALMOST done, need help with shelves!!


I made some floating shelves for my daughter. She loves them. They are based on the ones the girls built on Shanty2chic. Check 'em out on YouTube.

Make them what ever size you like. Note: I am building four more for my wife's niece!
Good luck.
Mike
Here are pics of my daughters shelves. Three different rooms.

Re: Bathroom ALMOST done, need help with shelves!!


i have some black pipe stuff in my house, im trying not to over do it though lol... the towel bars and faucet are a little more refined... so i think i want something a little bit cleaner..



i love those floating shelves! what wood did you use?? i could easily box up some wood like that and make my own! did you hold them together with glue or did you use finishing nails???

2x4 for the frame.

The wood is ripped and cut to length from the "Project panel" sold at Lowe's. It is Lodgepole pine, a soft pine. with a few knots. Makes for a rustic look. The stain is Rustoleum KONA. I love that stuff. Dries fast also...1-2 hours.

Good luck.
Mike

Re: Bathroom ALMOST done, need help with shelves!!


Thanks mike 'MT stringer" for the great idea!! I followed your idea, making 2 shelves from ripped down 2x4's (as anchors) and common pine boards (smooth, but yet rougher than the select pine)

I purposely let my cuts vary 1-2 8ths, just so it wouldn't look too... well, square. quickly wiped them with some chestnut stain.


the lower shelf is 17x12 and the upper shelf is 17x8.5


** ignore the vanity light that is getting replaced with a nice metal one

Thanks! They were pretty easy to make, cost about 20 bucks for both shelves!
