A Place to Set Some Clutter

 I recently felt the urge to put up a little shelf above my desk at home so that I could clear my desktop a bit. Not looking for anything super elaborate (and not wanting to spend much time on it), I decided to screw an old board onto two brackets and attach it to the wall.

Conveniently, a client of mine gave me a few orphaned walnut table leaves to reclaim them to some good use. So use them I did. I did very little to them other than partially strip the crusty finish, scratch a molding profile on the front, and cut out a cyma reversa-ovolo-cyma recta profile on the brackets.  Then I stuck it on the wall. Now my clutter has class.


  1. I know this is an old post, but my wife loves these shelves and Im in the process of making her some. This may be a dumb question, but how did you mount these to the wall?

  2. Not dumb. Screws went into the wall. The screws holes were puttied.
