With just a little prep, paint and some new shelf brackets, old floor boards became stylish storage.
drill gun, drywall screws and wood screws
10 to 12 pieces of vintage floor boards, 9" to 12" inches wide
metal shelf brackets (depending on the number of shelves)
paintbrush, paint (latex, eggshell)
Measure the area for the shelves, find where the wall studs are and measure out three inches from there. The shelf brackets must go into studs to be structurally sound, and should be no more than 3-feet long to handle the weight. Use a tape measure, stud finder and level to mark stud location and shelf placement.
Clean the wood boards with a wire brush and scraper. Fill nail holes with wood filler. Let it dry and sand the boards.
