Today I am sharing picture ledge shelves
I made for our living room.
These are the easiest shelves in the entire world!
Very inexpensive as well!
I cut a 1 x 4 pine board into 36" lengths.
Then I stained it.
After it was dry, I sanded it very well to distress the wood.
For the shelf support , I used L brackets.
These are not very strong and sturdy for anything heavy.
But I knew my shelves were only going to hold light items, so it works perfectly for me.
I spray painted the metal L brackets with rust spray paint.

When everything was dry, I screwed the brackets to the wood,
then mounted the entire thing to the wall.
I always get our family photo printed and mounted on mat board.
I love not having to frame them, then I can just set them on a shelf.
I used our family photos to hide the antennae for our tv.
