This wall is the first thing you see when you walk into our house, and I've been itching to install some shelves on it for a long time.

After seeing Daniel's DIY shelves, I knew that they would be perfect for our space. I used 6 foot long pine boards and 10" L brackets for the project. It was actually really easy and I am more than happy with the finished product. Daniel stained his shelves and painted his brackets, but I really like the raw materials, so I just sanded the boards and got them up!

3 pine boards- $10 each- $30
6 brackets- $6 each- $36
Box of screws- $4
Total- $70

Not bad!
