A Wall Shelf without Bulky Support Brackets
Hang a Wall Shelf with Hidden Brackets
I know there are a lot of shelving systems out there and sometimes it's hard to choose which one is right for you. But I have to confess, I have a particular favorite. I like it because it's easy to put up, can support a lot of weight and it looks like it's almost floating on the wall. It's made up of two parts, the bracket right here and the shelf. Let me show you how it works. First, drill the mounting holes in the wall. If the shelving bracket can't be screwed directly to the wall studs, bore a hole through the drywall or plaster and insert one of these hollow wall anchors, sometimes called molly bolts.
Tighten the center screw on the anchor until it's snug and then back the screw completely out. Hold the mounting bracket in position and pass the screw through one of the predrilled holes. Insert the screw back into the anchor and retighten it.
Finally, slip the rear edge of the shelf into the bracket channel, and the shelf is complete.
You know, what I really like about this shelving system? It puts the emphasis on what's being displayed rather than on bulky braces and brackets. You can put a shelf like this in any room and on just about any kind of wall.
