- Drill, paint brush, screwdriver, and measuring tape (not shown)
Step 1: Wood Stain
Apply wood stain onto your wood pieces: entire shelf piece, both side pieces EXCEPT the edges with the metal hanging plates and three holes, and the dowel piece EXCEPT the smaller ends.
If applicable: prime and paint your wood pieces and allow to dry thoroughly.
Step 2: Hook Holes
When shelf is dry, it’s time to predrill your hook holes.Measure in from the back edge of the shelf piece as far as you’d like (example shows about 3/4″) every 2-1/4” at the points shown in this photo.
Step 3: Dowel
Hold the dowel on its narrow side and drill the holes carefully. Don’t drill all the way through.
Insert your dowel, with all hooks facing the same way, into the installed side piece.
Step 4: Hanging Plate
Unscrew the wall hanging plate screws and spin it 180 degrees so the narrow end of the wall hanging hole is nearest the shelf piece.
