0 How To: Hang Vintage-Style Bracket Shelf

Contributor post by Emily and Erick of Heidi's Bridge


 When furnishing a room, we find that one of the more difficult pieces to source is shelving. We had always admired wall shelves, but it wasn't until our friends at Meadowsweet Mercantile sourced the most amazing pair of vintage-style brackets that we knew what we had to make! As naive DIYers, we thought we could simply drill our brackets to the wall and be good to go. How wrong could we be: at first attempt, we drilled our bracket to the wall after spinning the screws and it immediately pulled out of the wall--disaster! After some research and a lot of trial and error, we finally figured out the key to hanging a sturdy shelf: having the correct screws for your specific wall! Here's what we learned.

You Will Need
-Measuring tape
-Pencil
-Two Vintage Wall Brackets
-Wood Board, about the same width as your brackets
-Four, 3" Screws (please read below to determine which screw is right for your wall)
-Electric Drill

1 DIY | Clay Circle Garland

Air dry clay is one of my favorite materials to use while crafting. It's so simple and the options for projects are endless! I recently made a moon phase mobile using air dry clay and loved the tiny circles so much that I decided to make a long garland out of them. I have primarily been using unfinished wood and plants to decorate my spaces lately and I love how the natural texture of the clay fits in with these materials.
