Build And Mount Your Own Floating Shelves For A Few Bucks

Video: Floating shelves are a great way to add some shelving to your house without taking up a ton of space. YouTuber DIY Creators shows off how to build one without having to spend too much on materials.

This is one of the easier projects to do and doesn’t require much in the way of power tools. Really, it’s just locking four pieces of lumber together with glue and dowels, painting, then mounting to your wall. Since it’s made from just a small bit of wood, it’s also super cheap. You’ll find a list of everything you’ll need over on YouTube.
