DIY - RECLAIMED WOOD BATHROOM SHELVES



Hi all, were back. 

After an amazing sunshine filled holiday in Spain i've landed back with a bump and I'm so so happy to report... we now have two out of our three bathrooms complete - hurrah! Our bathrooms have been ongoing projects for a while now, we opted to do all three in one swoop (perhaps not the wisest idea) but at last the end is in sight. In ode to our shiny new bathrooms i want to share with you one of our new DIY projects.


Reclaimed Wood Bathroom Shelves



Our bathroom has been painted a neutral off white which offset the darkness of our stone tiles beautifully. Above our bath we had a 'blank space' which cried out for chunky wooden shelves. Floating shelves were a little too plain and i don't particularly like brackets. We looked into using 'industrial pipe' but by the power or Pinterest (hurrah) we came across shelves with rope.


The design we came up with in the end was something we put together from several options on Pinterest. I loved the idea of a tan rope and not having bulky brackets. Our varnish was a mixture of dark and medium oak which was painted on and wiped off as required.



Fixing the shelves - It was important that we invested in some 'heavy duty' adhesive to fix these shelves to the wall so we took a trip to our local hardware store where they recommended us a special adhesive for heavy duty items. After hanging the top shelf we left it for 24hrs before hanging the second shelf below, we then left this another 24hrs before putting any items on the shelf, the tension of the rope at the front along with the adhesive holds the shelves securely.


Cost - The cost of these beautiful shelves was minimal. The boards we already had, i purchased the rope for around £3 and the only other item purchased was the extra strength adhesive (which cost around £6) so a grand total of £9 - win win!


WHAT WAS USED
x2 Reclaimed Wood Boards
Rope
Tape Measure
Drill
Varnish
Sander
Extra Strength Adhesive
Spirit Level
x2 Wall Hooks


TUTORIAL
> Cut shelves to required size
> Around 3" from corner on the 'front' of the shelf drill through (to allow rope - use drill size according to rope diameter)
> Varnish shelves and sand for desired 'weathered look'
> Attach x2 wall brackets securely, approx 4" inside of each end of your wooden boards ensuring they are level.
> Our rope length was around 4 meters in total. See Diagram Below - Working with the middle of the rope from the centre of the brackets [1] tie the left then right [2] allowing the rope to hang down from each bracket. Feed each side of the rope through the holes on the top board [3] tie a knot under each side (ensure your knot does not go through the board!) you may need a second person to help here. Whilst holding the board add your adhesive to the back length and secure this to the wall, you will also need your spirit level here. As mentioned above, we left this for 24hrs to dry securely.
> When your 24hrs is up feed the rope through your bottom shelf and repeat the process above.

      The hooks are SO good, we've used them on a few 'heavier' wall items in our recently. They work ace with the rope.

In the past, I have been failed by economics homework help experts and therefore I just hope that you will prove to be different.

  21. Do you offer statistics assignment help with convolutions in the topic of probability theory? The probability theory topic in statistics keeps getting harder as we proceed further in the topic. Convolutions are one of the concepts. What I understood from my class lectures was it involved using the formula below for the discrete case. Let me know how much you would charge per hour for one on one classes. In addition I also need Econometrics assignment help experts. I have sent the details to you and therefore I am waiting for your feedback.

  22. Being a professor, I would like to know whether you write a thesis for students. I have a thesis but my budget is very tight. I am willing to pay $600 if you can offer me quality economics assignment help on this one. If it is successful then I am going to get more economics homework help now and in the future. Let me know whether it is possible to work with that budget.

  24. This is the first time I have asked for the change of a C++ Assignment Help tutor. Having worked with you for over three years I have never had a problem with you. However last week I took Programming Assignment Help from you guys but i was not happy with the person i was assigned. He was not providing updates of the work 4 days after he started. I just got tired and requested a change which was done immediately. I am happy to report that my work is now progressing well with the updates I wanted.

  33. My name is Jane Wembli Josh and i live in the USA California and life is worth living right now for me and my family and all this is because of one man sent by GOD to help me and my family, i once had a life filled with sorrow because my first SON needed a kidney transplant and all our savings were going towards his medications and this normally leaves us with no money to pay our bills or even put enough food on our table and our rent was due and no funds to pay these bills and life felt so unfair to me and every night my wife will cry herself to sleep every night until one day, i was browsing through yahoo answers and i saw a striking advert of a man that gives out personal loans and that the offer is opened to all and i have heard so many things about internet scams but at this point of my life, i was very desperate and ready to take any risk and at the end of the day, i applied for this loan and from one step to another, i got my loan within 12 hours through bank transfer and you know, it was all like a dream and i called Rev. Fr. Kevin Doran A Man who is the GOD sent lender i found and said, i have received my loan and he smiled stating that to GOD be the glory and i was so shocked as i have never ever seen anyone with such a GOD fearing and kind heart and today, i am the happiest man on earth because by GOD’S grace, my SON kidney transplant was successful and today he is healthy, i and my family are living very comfortable and happy and if you are in my former situation or in serious and legitimate need of a loan, you can reach this GOD sent lender via consumerloanfirm@gmail.com
