Now this is a classic floating shelf. Love how elegant and professional this looks for a DIY project. I like the idea of the corner shelves, it can really brighten up that little space you have left. I basically love the fact that people can't see how the shelves actually float but it's something so simple and doesn't require alot of materials to complete.

I really like the look of floating shelves. These corner ones are a great way to use up "dead space" in your home. Plus, you can style them in so many unique ways.

What a fantastic way to put those corners to good use.

I take it all back. THIS is my all-time fave example of floating shelves. I remember having these built in my childhood home and it was a great way to store little odds and ends (like porcelain dolls).

This is a great way to maximize use of odd spaces in apartments. Having little accents like this really makes a home feel like home.
