DIY Shelf Project: Very Elegant Shelf Construction with Using Belt
This shelf is waiting on my list of things to do since I came across it in Design Sponge 2 years ago. We love such DIY projects; because they are as fast and effortless as they are beautiful.They require little effort and they add an elegant view.
Yeah, now can going to work.
DIFFICULT – DURATION
A beginner level project. You need 4 hours to dry it, and you will spend 2 hours for the construction.
If you do not count the tools, the price of the materials will vary between 10 and 15 dollars depending on the place you bought.
Only a little drill will sound during the drill holes, but this sound will be very short. Neighbor friend.
- Ruler / Meter
- 2 x Solid Wood Panel
- Wood Protector / Varnish
- 32 x Nail
- 2 x Dubel
- 2 x Screw
STEP by STEP TUTORIAL OF THE PROJECT
Apply the varnish to your panels and wait for them to dry. Wait, please, if you do not wait, your pleasure will run away.
Mark your panels you are sure to dry, measuring 5 cm from the sides. (I think you are expecting the belts here).
3. Attach the belts in pairs so that both sides are of equal length. If you need an extra hole, do not panic, open it. Hammer and nail will be used for this.
Place your first panel in the belts, matching the mark you have marked. Set the belts to the points of the buckles according to the desired point. The panels and the wall should not come close to hanging points.
When everything is complete, let’s start to work with nails. Turn the panel upside down, paying close attention to the alignment of the belts. Fix the panel with three nails from the belt marking line. Do the same with the other belt.
Pin the belts to the sides of the panel.
7. Decide how far you want your second panel to stay on the first panel. Mark the belts. Next, nail on the sides of the panel, taking care to mark the marked points of both the panel and the belts.
After checking whether there is any slope/skewness, you can hang your raffle on the wall. You can use balance applications to control the curve.
9. Do not try to fix the wall with hammer and nail, it will not carry the shelf. Once you’ve drilled your holes, then put your dowels
You must have already noticed that your shelf is not light and stable. So you will need a little help while hanging. Hold it, you screw it. You hold it, and your friend screws it. Screws will not appear if you practice through the belt’s curled-in place.
After that, fill your new shelf according to your taste and decor.
