Step 1: Materials
- Knuff plywood magazine files from IKEA
- shelf, or piece of wood cut to size and L-brackets
- Drill, and small wood bit
Step 2: If staining, stain!
Once the wood is all smooth, you're good to stain.
Step 3: Install Shelf
If you're working with your own plank of wood, as I did, knock around your space looking for studs. After measuring, leveling, and coordinating the marks on the wall and the shelf, first install the brackets onto the shelf. Then screw into the wall.
