Turn an old cutting board into a functional floating shelf. Stack books on it, make it your new plant shelf, or hang it next to your bed and make turn it into a bedside shelf. All you need are a few supplies!
What you need
Cutting board (IKEA), rope, dark wood stain, metallic copper spray paint, scissors, exacto knife, painter’s tape, sand paper, and a hook to hang the shelf from the ceiling.
Painter’s tape and ceiling hook not pictured.
Sand down the board before applying dark walnut wood stain using cloth or rag.
The handles were covered so I used an exacto knife to cut away the rubber covering the handles. I then covered the wood board with painter’s tape and spray painted the hardware with metallic copper spray paint.
Cut four pieces of rope (one for each corner) about 4 feet each. Use a simple knot to attach rope to each corner by passing the line through a loop around the corner of each handle.
Lastly, connect the lines from all corners using simple knot and hang up by a ceiling hook.
