✔️Begin with an old door.
✔️Measure and cut a plank of wood plank to desired length for shelf. We used a piece of old barnwood measuring 1″ thick by 10″ wide.
✔️Measure and cut wood for corbels to desired lengths. We used 4″x9″x1″ for the “L” section!of the corbel.
✔️Miter one end of the corbels to 45 degree angle.
✔️If your old wood plank is not square, push or pull while secure the corbel brace to level using a square tool to straighten the wood.
✔️Paint or stain as desired. For an extra chippy look, try putting a layer of wax or Vaseline in certain spots before you paint. The paint won’t stick to those areas and will scrape or sand right off for an old chippy look!
✔️Locate the studs in the wall. This can be tricky. Be sure to take your time measuring twice and use a stud finder if possible.
