lean look

Resting framed photos or art against a wall creates a casual, relaxed feel.  Plus, there’s no hole commitment threatening to last for years.  Shelving options abound, or simply use the top surface of a piece of furniture. 

Directions for pictured shelf:

  1. purchase 3 boards at whatever length (shown is 2′) – back board 1/2″ thick & 3 1/2″ tall, ledge board 3/4″ x 2 1/2″, front lip board 3/8″ x 1 1/2″
  2. using nails or brads & wood glue connect the back board flush with the ledge board’s top surface, let dry
  3. attach front lip to ledge facing, raising the lip piece 1/4″ up to be used as a “stop” for display items
  4. sink front nail holes & fill with wood filler
  5. prime & paint shelves
  6. secure directly onto wall through back piece & into studs
