DIY Floating Shelves

I have been eyeing floating shelves on Pinterest for quite some time. When we moved into our house, I found the perfect spot for shelves so I added it to the Honey Do List.  My husband, Tyler grew up with a shop full of tools to build anything the heart desired.  For this project, we didn't have all the suggested tools, but with some tinkering he made it work. Tyler liked to compare me asking him to build something to him asking me to make meatballs and mashed potatoes with a knife and microwave. Fair enough, but I think he did a great job! I had him follow this plan on Pinterest, but we decided to make the shelves slightly longer so they looked right on the wall I had chosen.

We stained the shelves with Miniwax Dark Walnut. Over the years, I've collected the decorations from a few different shops and stores, and I think they compliment each other nicely. 

The metal pail with dried flowers was once a very shiny pail. I'll have to create a post on how I made it look old and dull so stay tuned ;)

Originally, I wanted three floating shelves, but it didn't flow nicely with the light switch so we added the hall table as an alternative. 

I think the shelves are my favorite decoration in my house and I love how it adds dimension to the living room. 

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you found a little inspiration for your home!
