DIY Tabletop Wall-Mounted Shelf: Creative and Practical

Are you looking for a fun and functional DIY project? How about turning tabletops into a stylish wall-mounted shelf? This project is a great way to repurpose old or unused tabletops into something practical for your space. Follow these simple steps to create your own tabletop wall-mounted shelf.

Materials Needed:
- Tabletops
- Screws and anchors
- Drill
- Level
- Measuring tape
- Pencil
- Sandpaper
- Wood stain or paint (optional)

Step 1: Preparation
Start by measuring your wall to determine the size and number of tabletop pieces needed. For a standard size, we recommend two pieces of 60’’*24’’. This size is perfect for daily use, such as a desk or countertop. Once you have finished using it as a desk or countertop, you can disassemble it. After cutting, you will have two pieces of 30’’*24’’ that are perfect for the base of floating shelves, providing ample space for larger items. Once you have the perfect-sized tabletops, ensure they are clean and smooth. If necessary, sand any rough edges or imperfections.

Step 2: Marking and Measuring
Decide the desired placement for your shelves on the wall. Use a measuring tape and pencil to mark the desired location of the shelves on the wall. Make sure to use a level to ensure accurate placement. The distance between the two shelves should be determined based on the items you plan to put on the shelves. However, it's important to add an additional 2-3 inches between the shelves to ensure that the items don't look cramped once they're set up.

Step 3: Attaching Supports (Optional)
Position the supports for each shelf according to your markings on the wall. Drill pilot holes into the wall for the supports, ensuring they are level and securely anchored.

Step 4: Mounting the Boards
Using a drill, attach the tabletops to the wall using screws and anchors. Place the first board at the desired height and secure it to the wall. Use a level to make sure it's straight before drilling.

Step 5: Finishing Touches (Optional)
Once the boards are securely attached, you can leave them as is for a natural look, or get creative with paint or stain to match your decor.

Step 6: Styling Your Shelf
Now comes the fun part—styling your new wall-mounted shelf! Add books, plants, decorative items, or storage bins to make the shelves both functional and visually appealing.
