Video: Floating shelves are a great way to mount a huge shelf to the wall so it looks natural, but YouTuber DIY Creators took that to the next level with a 2.5m-long shelf that has a storage compartment on the end.
The shelf itself is great looking, but the kicker here is the compartment on the end that essentially works as a hidden storage compartment. There’s also an LED strip below that lights up. Since this is really just a big box, the project only requires a basic understanding of woodworking, but you’ll still need a good selection of tools to get the job done. You’ll find everything you need over on YouTube.
