A few weeks ago, I saw a nice Love shelf project passing by online and thought it could really feet in my house. I drew up various designs based on pictures of various LOVE shelves that I had seen.
Then, I decided how tall I wished the shelf to be and came up with the other dimensions.Then I went to the wood store to purchase my wood and the hardware store to purchase the rest.
For the shelf lover, I have also included a free plan that I made to do it yourself if you want: You will find it at that link
Materials used here:
Wood: lumber 2*2.10 long, 15cm large and 6cm thick
Screws: 10 cm at least
What do you need to do:
1- You need to know how tall you want to have your shelf. Important to buy the appropriate number of wood
2- Purchase your materials.When purchasing the materials, please remember that the V angle can be tricky to cut so also take into consideration having an angle measuring tool.
3- Start measuring then go to the cutting… please look at the plan attached to have the dimensions.
4- To start screwing you need to lay out all pieces on the floor in order to have a clear overview of where you need to screw first. I will advise to look at the video below, I am showing a nice and easy way so you don’t end up with unscrewed part.
5- Painting or else: here I have decided to burn the wood in order to give it a rustic and old fashion effect which I love by the way, specially if you are dealing with a wooden wall. The design can be complementary…
After burning, I have added some finish lacquer to highlight the wood burning effect.
Then decorate as you want and enjoy your LOVI LOVE shelf…
