Finally, sand the shelf and apply a finish to protect the wood and enhance its natural beauty. Remember to prioritize safety when working with power tools and reclaimed wood by wearing protective gear and following all safety precautions.

How to decorate floating shelves?

Decorating floating shelves is a fun and creative way to add personality and style to any room. Start by choosing a theme or color scheme to guide your decorating choices. Use a mix of functional items such as books, vases, and baskets, and decorative items such as framed photos, artwork, and figurines and other decor. Vary the height and size of the items to create visual interest and balance. Don’t be afraid to play with textures and mix and match different materials such as wood, metal, and glass. Finally, step back and assess your arrangement, making adjustments as needed until you achieve the desired look. Remember, decorating floating shelves is all about having fun and expressing your unique style.

How to hang a floating shelf with no visible hardware.

Find the studs in the wall. Drive a ⅜” or ½” by 10”-12” long lag bolts into the stud leaving enough sticking out to almost equal the width of the shelf. Cut off the heads of the bolts at about 5” -6” plus or minus. Drill matching holes in the shelves larger than the lag bolt. Slide the shelf over the bolts. You can squirt a little glue in the hole or drill a screw in at an angle to fasten to the stud in the wall. Come on into All American Reclaim for the proper hardware and a demonstration on how to hang your floating shelf.
