Step 9: Hang Your Shelf! + Finish!
Hooray! You're finished! Now all you have to do is hang the shelf, and use it for whatever you need!
To hang my shelf, I used a highly sophisticated method of epicness, by which I mean, "I have no former experience in hanging a shelf of any kind, and thus used a system of nailing around one dozen finishing nails (without large nail heads) to securely hold that puppy to the wall." So essentially what I did was to place a nail in every strategic place I could come up with, mostly including the corners of the shelf. This method turned out to be quite useful. In fact, the shelf felt as sturdy as any ordinary shelf would if it was held to the wall with only a few nails.
I hope this Instructable provided you with enough info to successfully make your own. This was my first Instructable, so it may have lacked the epic intelligence which can surely be found in any of the senior Instructable masters' how-tos... If you end up making a cardboard shelf, be sure to post a picture below in the comments.
