This week’s Pinterest project is another piece I hope to use in my new home. This one is magazine rack for my office/library. I wasn’t in love with the design on the sample, so I modified it to work with my esthetic. We are planning on having an industrial style office set up with reclaim/raw wood and black metal pipe shelves with a desk built in. So, instead of using the traditional scroll work shelf brackets I switched to a more industrial looking bracket.
First I gathered my materials.
(2 sets of metal shelf brackets, 4 wood screws, a sanding block, natural finish wood stain, 2 24″ 1″x12″ pieces of wood.
I sanded the boards so there were no rough edges or gouges in the wood.
Once everything was smooth, I lined up the 2 pieces of wood to figure out where to insert the screws to secure the 2 pieces together. When I had the screws marked, I pre-drilled the holes, and then secured the 2 pieces of wood together with the 4 evenly spaced screws.
When I had the actual shelf made, I set the brackets, and secured them with the shorter screws that came with the brackets.
Here’s what the shelf looks like staged…
