Building & Renovating

Create Your Own Floating Shelf Using Budget-Friendly Materials

You might even have some of the items already!


Living in a small home teaches us how to be smart and how to make clever choices. For example, to save on floor space, we learned how to pick dual-purpose furniture and how to make the most of vertical space. And speaking of vertical space, you can actually craft a hanging wall shelf that can help you keep things in place and display some of your favorite things. 

If you're worried about costs, don't be! This project uses readily available materials that aren't expensive. Video bloggers Caitlin Murray and Caitlin McCarthy created just the right piece that can inspire you. Lucky for us, they have a video that we can follow to be able to craft this project. Watch the video and take note of the steps—don't forget to have fun while working:
