Never showed you guys these floating shelves. Super simple project with great results.

The shelf brackets are from IKEA. I used the “sagometer” to calculate that the weight of books required solid wood, so I planed some down and hit it with black lacquer. The wall is concrete so I had to hammer drill for anchors; a pain but I think they came out good.

I think my wife likes these more than the complex projects I’ve done.
