You’ve decided to set up shelves easily and quickly using Made by Me’s Floating Shelf Kit. Before you can get to decorating and posting your creation to Instagram, you need to install your shelves properly. These four tips can help your install go smoothly when planning your design.
Leave a Height Clearance
Consider the Weight Load
Each Made by Me™ shelf kit (hardware for two brackets) allows up to 110 pounds safe weight load when installed properly. Keep this in mind when placing larger or heavier objects on top.
Depth of Shelves
The shelf should not be larger than 11 3/8” in depth.
Apply cabot Australian timber oil to all six sides of each board.
Make sure to use a paintbrush that is specifically made for applying this type of oil. A Purdy White Bristle Extra Oregon brush is perfect since it’s made specifically for oil-based paints, stains, and oils. This will help with proper application and even coverage of the oil.
