Seeing the photos and realising just how much better it looks once the shelves are up we are definitely going to do this to smarten up our guest loo. I love floating shelves but did not know that they could be so simple to make. Now that I have seen the very detailed tutorial I am going to make one for our hallway too.

For ages our teenage daughter has been asking for floating shelves in her dressing table nook and this project is going to be just perfect. Our saw is sounding very ill at the moment so I am asking Pete at the timber store to cut the required pieces, Lily and I will collect them tomorrow and start preparing the timber. Shes having a sleepover on Saturday night and cant wait to show her friends. The tutorial is really clear and detailed so we might just be able to get them done in time.
