Next I used my drill to place a 3/8″ hole in the top of each side piece…
Our very favorite drill is Ryobi’s 18v One+ drill. This is by far my favorite drill I have ever used. It’s lightweight, powerful and the battery life is unreal. I also love that the batteries change around with all of my other Ryobi One+ tools! Too legit!
To finish this shelf, I used one of my very favorite stains…
Rust-Oleum Ultimate Wood Stain in Dark Walnut
You just brush it on with a foam brush and use an old rag to wipe it off… Easy! You can find this stain at Lowe’s or Walmart.
Finally, I used a piece of sisal rope which I also found at Lowe’s to hang it on the wall. I just ran the ends of the rope through the holes at the top of the shelf and tied knots on each end. I used good anchors in my wall since I wasn’t attaching this to a stud. I found my hook at Lowe’s.
My very last step was hanging it up, dressing it up and taking some pics for you!
What do you think??
I hope you love it!
