A corner isn’t exactly a popular spot to decorate. Most people wouldn’t even bother to put anything on their corners, thinking nothing good could come out of it. But that’s where they’re wrong. Look at this photo from House of Rose blog, and you’ll most likely have a change of heart.
See how these simple shelves and the right choices of decor to put on top of each could instantly spruce up the space?
And it’s not just about the aesthetics. Think about how practical it is to have a space in the corner where you could put your essentials like your cell phone perhaps, or that favorite book that you always read before drinking your morning coffee.
Corner shelves are so versatile, they can be placed wherever, whether in the bedroom, living room, kitchen or even in the bathroom. In the bathroom, it could hold your toiletries and personal hygiene products from shampoo to body wash to facial scrubs and many more.
And it’s very easy to make too. You’ll just need a couple of things like board, plywood, wall anchors, and finish nails. All these are available in your local home improvement store.
As for the tools, you need to have the following: circular saw, drill, miter saw, drill bit (3/16 and 1/2 inches), tape measure, and hammer and nail set (or finish nailer).
In the tutorial below, you won’t just find a written tutorial but a very useful video tutorial, courtesy of the author’s dad who according to her is the “brains behind this DIY project”. This is a boon for those who’d rather watch than read the step-by-step procedure.
Enjoy making your own corner shelves!
