Come build these simple and inexpensive DIY Floating Corner shelves with easy to follow instructions by Shanty2Chic!

Hey friends!  So excited about how these DIY Floating Corner Shelves turned out!  I seriously now want a set of corner shelves in every room.  I am in the middle of revamping my daughter’s room, and just finished up one big corner.  Let’s build these!

This is a variation of our original DIY floating shelves, and so simple to build!  The best part?  Each shelf cost under $40 in lumber.   I will share the full tutorial below!

I used my miter saw to cut the frames for my shelves first.  This part uses 2×4 lumber.

Once those were cut, I used my K5 Kreg Jig
to create 1.5″ pocket holes into each of my small pieces.

Building the Corner Shelves

create pocket holes on braces

Each short piece will have two pocket holes like below…

Next, I used my Ryobi 18V drill to connect the small pieces to the longer wall cleats with 2.5″ pocket hole screws.  I added a line of Titebond wood glue under each small piece before connecting…

Building the floating shelf braces

Each cleat will have 3 small boards connected like this.

Building the shelf braces

Once I had all my braces built, I attached them to the wall.  Every wall is different, but this is the method I have used on every floating shelf in my house.

These are the Spax screws I used to attach the braces to the wall.  These are self-tapping and 3″ long.  3.5″ is a great length too.

Spax Screws

I marked lines on the wall where I wanted my shelves to sit.  I used a stud finder to mark my studs on the wall.  These are the 2×4 that are under the sheetrock.  Anytime you are mounting to the wall, it is best to try to screw into these studs for support.  I used my Ryobi Impact driver to go through the braces and into the studs in the wall.  Make sure to check for level so your shelf doesn’t sit wonky.  This is the level I use… Cheap and works like a charm!

I attached the first two braces and it looked a bit like this…

I measured 13″ up from this brace to attach my next brace pieces using the same method.

Next, I basically wrapped the brace pieces.  I started with the 1/4″ plywood for the bottoms of each shelf.  I used my Ryobi AirStrike nailer to attach these bottom pieces into the braces using wood glue and 1.25″ finish nails.  A stapler will also work on this part.  I used my table saw to rip down the 1/4″ wood for this part, but you can also have Home Depot rip it down for you.

Attach bottom boards

Now I attached my top 3/4″ boards.  These are 1×10 common boards I found at Home Depot.  I cut them to size using my miter saw, and attached them using wood glue and 1.25″ finish nails.

Attach top pieces
add wood glue to top of shelf

I added my side pieces next using the same method… This is 1×4 common pine boards from Home Depot.

At this point I added my front pieces.  I used wood glue and 1.25″ finish nails for this part as well.

That’s it!  I stained these shelves using Varathane Kona stain.  You can find it on Amazon HERE!  I also found some Simpson Strong-Tie metal corners that I spray painted gold and attached using gold furniture tacks to each corner to dress each shelf up.  I LOVE the outcome!

Keyword: diy, floating shelves,, free plans

  • 2 2x4x8 pine or whitewood
  • 1 1/4” X 24” X 48” plywood
  • 1 1” x 10” x 8’
  • 1 1” x 6” x 8’
  • 1-1/2” pocket screws
  • 1-1/4” brad nails
  • 3” Spax screws
  • Wood Glue
  • Cut List

  • Begin by constructing the wall cleats. Drill for 2-1/2” pocket screws in the cleat braces and attach to the wall cleats as shown. First hold up the longer wall cleat and mark where your studs are. Repeat with your shorter wall cleat, making sure you start 1-1/2” out from the wall to compensate where the first cleat will be. Drill two pilot holes for the torx screws. Using a level hold the longer cleat up to the wall and drive 3” torx screws at the marked locations (above illustrations are rough estimates, your locations may very). Repeat with shorter cleat, making sure both are level.

  • Using 1-1/4” brad nails and wood glue attach the bottom plywood panels, starting with the longer panel first and making sure you are flush on the outside edges.

  • Next attach the top of the shelf with 1-1/4” brad nails and wood glue. Again, make sure outside edges are flush.

  • Finally, add the trim. It is best to cut the remaining pieces to fit.PLEASE SEE NOTE ON THE CUT LIST PAGE ABOUT USING 2X3 MATERIAL FOR THE CLEATS. THIS WILL ALLOW YOU USE 1X4 WOOD FOR THE TRIM WITHOUT HAVING TO DO ANY RIPPING.First you will measure the height of your shelves, from the bottom of the plywood to the top of the 1×10 material. It should be about 4-1⁄2”. Rip your 1×6 material down to this measurement. Then begin with the sides and attach with 1/4” brad nails and wood glue. Next attach the long front trim. Finally the short front trim. Now, tape off the wall and apply the finish of your choice.

DIY Floating Corner Shelves

In this post, I’ll share how to build these unique DIY floating corner shelves with just one board!

Home office with craft desk and built ins with DIY corner floating shelves on the wall

This office space used to be “nacho cheese yellow.” Not even kidding–that’s the name written on the paint can we found in the basement after we bought the house.

.

I wasn’t a huge fan of the color, or the boringness of the empty space, so I decided to give it some much needed style and function.

.

First, I remodeled the room, then I built a new desk, and finally, I added these floating shelves to display some of my favorite items and books.

.

These aren’t your typical floating shelves, but what’s really cool about this boxy style is that you can install them on an inside corner or around an outside corner as well!

.

So if you want to build your own, grab a board and let’s get building 🙂

To Build These DIY Floating Corner Shelves, You Will Need:

Step 1: Cut Corner Shelf Pieces

I cut my 1×8 board into pieces:

  • (2) 28″ long
  • (4) 10″ long

Now, a typical 1×8 is 7 ¼″ wide, so these shelves are 7 ¼″ deep. If you want deeper shelves, you can use a wider board like a 1×10 or 1×12.

1x8 board cut into pieces to assemble floating shelves--two 28" boards and four 10" boards on workbench

A 1×8 is 7 ¼″ wide, so these shelves were 7 ¼″ deep. However, if you want a deeper shelf, feel free to use a wider board–like a 1×10 or 1×12.

Step 2: Assemble Long Shelf Side

I screwed the 28″ pieces onto the ends of one of the 10″ pieces with 1 ¼″ wood screws like shown in the image below.  Feel free to use wood glue as well if you want.

.

I could have used pocket holes and screws here, but it would be hard to get the drill in that small space after the first 28″ piece was on.

Two 28" boards screwed into 10" board to make long side of floating corner shelf

HELPFUL TIP: Don’t forget to predrill here! Those screws in these thin boards will split easily if you don’t!

Step 3: Add Short Corner Shelf Side

I used a pocket hole jig to drill ¾″ pocket holes into the ends of two of the 10″ boards. Then, I used 1 ¼″ pocket hole screws to attach them to the other end of the 28″ pieces like shown below.   

RELATED:Learn how to use a pocket hole jig in this post!

Two 10" boards screwed to long corner shelf side using pocket holes and screws

HELPFUL TIP: Think about how you want to hang your shelves and have the pocket holes face up.  This way, you can set something on the shelf to cover the hole on the bottom pieces and you wont see the top of the top piece if you hang it eye level or higher.

.

Or, if you’d rather plug these pocket holes so they’re hidden, check out this post for 4 different ways you can plug your pocket holes.

.

Then, I screwed the last 10″ piece between these two short boards using 1 ¼″ wood screws.

Final pieces of corner shelf screwed into short side

Now, you can stain it or paint it as you wish before you hang it. 

Step 4: Hang DIY Floating Corner Shelf

To hang these corner shelves, I screwed L brackets into the studs where I wanted my shelf to hang (make sure you use at least 2 ½″ long screws to secure it into the studs!)

.

If you don’t have a stud where you want your L bracket, use a drywall anchor. Then, I placed the shelf on the brackets and screwed them in.  You can see the brackets underneath the top shelf in the picture below.

L brackets screwed into wall to used to hang corner floating shelves

You will need to use two L brackets on both the top and bottom shelves here–so at least 4 brackets total.

.

I found it easiest to hang the top brackets on the wall first, rest the top shelf on them, then screw in the bottom shelf brackets in order to get the spacing between the shelves right.

.

Now, I wouldn’t weigh these down with tons of heavy stuff, but this was plenty to hold a few books and decor items like you see in the pictures.

.

If you didn’t want to use L brackets, you could also use pocket holes and screws drilled into the shelves where the studs will be. You can see an example of how I used this method to install floating shelves under a bathroom mirror.

.

Now that the shelf is hung, use it to display your favorite books and decor.

These would work great in a home office, a kids room, or in an entryway to toss keys and mail onto if you don’t have floor space for a table!

Our Floating Corner Shelves

Today I’m sharing all the details about the floating corner shelves in our kitchen because I’ve gotten so many questions about them since the reveal of our kitchen remodel. When designing our kitchen, I had something very specific in mind for the open shelving and there was nothing pre-made that came close to it so my contractor (Reszoly Builders) and I tag teamed to DIY it! My shelves ended up being one of my favorite things about our new space so I wanted to share the step by step how-to for those of you who would like to bring this look into your home too! And read on to the end of the post where I share a source for buying super similar floating shelves pre-made if you’d prefer not to DIY! (post includes affiliate links – full disclosure statement available {here})

Sharing how to DIY the corner wood shelves in our kitchen!(See {this post} for all kitchen remodel sources)

First, here’s the step by step of how to create floating wood shelves if you want to DIY it… 

1. Source White Oak Boards

The first step was to find a local source for thick white oak boards, which most typical hardware stores don’t carry. The key is to look for a place that specializes in raw lumber products because not only will they carry the oak boards but they’ll typically also cut and plane them to the size you want. I ended up getting mine from Kellogg Hardwood Lumber in Bethel, CT – I bought two raw white oak boards that were both planed to be 1 3/4″ thick (the maximum thickness they were able to get from a 2″ thick board) and ripped (cut along its length) to be 10″ deep. This is what each board looked like when I brought them home – isn’t the wood itself beautiful?!

The white oak boards used to create the floating corner shelves in our kitchen

2. Install Floating Shelf Brackets

I did a ton of searching and reading of reviews to figure out which shelf brackets would work best for our floating corner shelves and ended up going with the large size of {these heavy duty steel brackets} that support shelves from 7-12″ deep.

The brackets we used to install our floating corner shelves

The brackets can be installed with the base in a vertical or horizontal position – my contractor installed them in the vertical position over studs to provide maximum stability. As far as the height that we placed the brackets, the bottom pair was positioned so that the bottom of the first shelf would line up with the bottom of my upper cabinet:

Aligning the floating corner shelves in our kitchen with the bottom of our cabinets

The top pair of brackets was placed exactly 15″ up from the bottom set since that’s the height I chose for my second shelf. To keep the base of the brackets from showing after installation of the shelves, my contractor traced the outline of them on the wall in the spots they were to be hung and notched out the drywall so that the brackets were slightly recessed once installed. This is what they looked like after installation (FYI, in case you’re wondering, the white shelf below was just a test shelf that I talk more about later):

These brackets work perfectly for installing floating corner shelves!

Note: you could also choose to hang the brackets so the base is horizontal instead of vertical (the brackets come with anchors for spots where they’re not going into studs) – then no wall prep is needed since the shelves will cover the base but you’d have to notch out the back of your wood shelves if you want them to sit flush on the wall. 

3. Tile or Putty Over the Brackets

Once the brackets were in place, our wall was tiled. The four tiles that went over the brackets were notched out and then laid as usual (the notches were done horizontally so they will be hidden by the shelves):

Great post on how to install brackets for floating corner shelves

If the walls where your shelf will hang are going to be painted instead of tiled, simply spackle over the base of the bracket, sand it smooth with the rest of the wall and paint it the same color as the wall. 

4. Join Two Oak Board Pieces to Create the “L” Shape

Now that my brackets were hung and the wall was tiled, it was time to create the corner shelf. Since the white oak wasn’t exactly cheap, my contractor built a test corner shelf with leftover construction lumber to make sure he had the sizing and hole placement correct and he then used that test shelf as a template for creating the white oak corner shelf. 

Creating the corner shelf involved joining together one long length of white oak (in my case, a 36″ long piece that spanned from the end of the cabinet to the wall) with a shorter piece (mine was 9″) to create the “L” shape. In the area where the two oak board pieces were to be joined, two large holes were drilled in each piece that line up with one another – then wood dowels and wood glue were used to join the pieces together after which they were clamped until dry.

Unfortunately I didn’t take a pic of this step but you can get a good idea of the hole size and placement by looking at the test piece in the bottom right of the pic below that was used as a trial piece. Then two holes for hanging the shelves were drilled on the back of each shelf at a position where they would line up exactly with the stem of the floating shelf brackets. Since all of these holes need to be drilled at exactly 90 degrees for everything to be level, creating them with a drill press is the best way to go. Second best would be using a clamp and drill guide like {this one}. 

5. Sand & Stain Your Corner Shelves

Once dry, the wood shelves were sanded so that the spot where the two pieces were joined together in the L shape was a totally smooth transition. If you want a completely natural look to your wood shelves, your next step would be to apply a few coats of a protective finish. I actually wanted mine to have a slightly gray washed look so I played around with different stain concoctions on some test pieces of white oak to create the exact stain I wanted. 

Testing out different stains for my floating corner shelves!

I wish I had a specific stain formula to share with you, but I kept adding a little more of this and that until I got it just right. What I can tell you is that it was a combination of Minwax Natural, Classic Gray, and Pickled Oak stains. After staining, I coated both sides and the front edge of both shelves with two coats of matte Polycrylic (available {here}), letting it dry well between coats. I love Polycrylic as a protective top coat because it doesn’t yellow like other top coats often do. Here’s a close up of what the final finish looks like:

Love the gray wash finish of these stained white oak corner shelves!

6. Slide Your Shelf Onto Your Brackets & Secure It

Once my corner shelves were completely dry, they were installed by simply sliding them onto the brackets. Then for extra security and to keep my shelves 100% level, my contractor drilled an anchoring screw (shown on the right about 1/3 down in the pic below) through the inside of my upper cabinet into the middle of each shelf about 1 1/2″ in from the front edge of the shelf:

At the time that we installed our floating corner shelves there were no shops out there that made anything like it. Since that time, UltraShelf (which you can find {here} has started selling floating shelves that are basically identical to mine (and they are giving my readers 25% off through this link!). They are completely customizable in size, thickness, wood type, and stain. I got the floating shelves in our bathroom from them and love them (you can read all about them and the specifics of the shelving I chose in {this post}:

Great info on floating wood shelves - where to buy them and how to install them!

To create corner shelves using UltraShelf, you would need to buy two shelves to create one corner shelf – one that runs along the long wall and a second one that butts up against it on the shorter wall. Their shelves come complete with brackets and everything you need to hang them. 

With both my kitchen and bathroom shelves, I love how the natural wood warms up the space and also love being able to change up the look of the rooms with what I choose to place on our shelves. I get a lot of questions about whether I feel my open corner shelving is wasted space and I actually don’t feel that way at all! Other than the small snake plant on the bottom shelf and my super cute decorative brass snail (available {here}), 

Love these ideas for kitchen floating corner shelves!

everything on my open shelves is something I use and would choose to have in my kitchen whether or not I had open shelving. Even {this ceramic pitcher} that holds faux flowers on the top shelf is something that I clean out and use for parties:

These realistic faux flowers in a pitcher are perfect for dressing up the look of your shelves!

As far as dust goes, things like my brass & glass pitcher and my wood bowls do get dusty over time but it takes less than a minute to give them a quick soapy rinse before putting them to use. 

I love open kitchen shelving - these are a few of the accessories that I have on mine!

What do you guys think about open shelving? This is the first house I’ve had it in and I would absolutely love to have it again in a future home (I do like also having some typical upper cabinets to hide the uglies!). I hope this post helped for those of you who have had questions about our corner shelving but if you need any more info or details on anything, just ask me in the comments! Thanks for stopping by and enjoy your week!

DIY Floating Corner Shelves.

One of our most pinned and re-posted projects are the corner shelves we installed in my son’s room.
A linen closet on the other side of this wall is the reason there is this awkward little nook.
We were able to turn this annoying detail in to one of the best additions in the room with some DIY corner shelves.

I almost wish they would have just made the linen closet bigger on the other side of the wall in order to keep the whole wall in this room flush.  There’s just barely enough room for a twin sized bed.  If I wanted to put a night stand next to the bed it would be floating in the middle of the room in front of that nook.  Not exactly ideal.
My solution…when life gives you lemons make floating shelves.

Making them is not as difficult as one might think.  The wonderful carpenter I found on HomeAdvisor (who also installed the wall planks) whipped these up in no time.  First, put up two pieces of 1×1 (which will be the main support for the shelves).  Make sure to nail directly in to the studs behind the wall.

 Next, cut a board so it aligns with your two walls.  Nail directly in to the top of the board so it hits the 1×1 support underneath.

 For the bottom of the shelf, cut an identical board as the top one and nail through the board directly in to the underside of the 1×1.

 Measure a face board that will cover the gap and nail to the top and the bottom boards.

 As before, make sure you are nailing the face board in to the top and bottom boards.

 I filled all the nails holes with stainable wood filler.  It you look closely you can probably see where the wood filler is.  Because the wood filler wasn’t the same color as the boards it also stained up differently.  In hindsight I wish I would have not filled the nail holes and just left the holes undone for a more rustic look.

 I used Frog Tape to protect the wall which worked great on top but staining the underneath was a different story.  Applying the stain without having it drip was really tricky.  Save yourself from having to do paint touch up and use two rows of tape or wider tape when staining the underneath.

Now that the shelves are up I really love the odd little nook.
And that, my friends, is how we turn lemons in to lemonade (or rather floating corner shelves).

The shelves are going to provide some much needed storage for that little bedroom.

The 9 Best Floating Shelves of 2021

Final Verdict

Overall, we recommend the Gracie Oaks Joao 2 Piece Poplar Solid Wood Floating Shelf (view at Wayfair) because the set of two shelves is offered in multiple finishes and sizes, easy to install, and is made of durable wood. For a budget-friendly option, we recommend the BAMEOS Floating Shelf (view at Amazon) because it's easy to install and is offered in multiple colors.

Material

As you’ve probably noticed, floating shelves are available in all sorts of materials, from compressed cardboard to solid steel. Choosing the right material mostly depends on where your shelf will be placed. Steel shelves are the best option for kitchens or bathrooms since they’re the easiest to clean and won’t warp, and they generally have a sleek profile. Wood shelves, especially those with a live edge, can basically be considered decor on their own since they’ll add a rustic touch wherever you put them.

Weight Capacity

Before you buy any floating shelf, decide what you’re going to put on it. Some of the more budget-friendly options we love aren’t able to hold heavier items, such as a stack of books. Also, keep in mind that some floating shelves should be installed directly into wall studs and will require a stud finder. For smaller shelves or those loaded with lightweight items, you can safely install them with drywall anchors.

Lips

Yes, lips. Floating picture ledges, kitchen shelves, and bathroom shelves should ideally have some kind of raised edge that prevents toiletries (or precious artwork) from tumbling to the ground. For artwork, a shelf with a lip is non-negotiable, whereas, for bathroom or kitchen shelves, you could go either way. It mostly depends on your style preference, but keep in mind that a raised lip or guardrail will help you keep spices or toiletries neatly in place day after day.

FAQ

  • Because they'll be holding potentially heavy decor — and are often heavy themselves — floating shelves often come equipped with installation hardware that includes drywall anchors. Simply follow the instructions that came with your floating shelves. Keep in mind for optimal sturdiness you should hang your floating shelf on a wall stud, which you can find with a stud finder. A leveler can help you ensure you're hanging it straight, too.

  • Floating shelves are a good way to make use of vertical space in any room, and depending on what type of shelf you buy, they can be versatile. Lighter-weight floating shelves are great for picture frames. vases, candles, and small plants. Heavy-duty floating shelves in kitchens, bedrooms, or living rooms can be used for storage, displaying books, or decanting. Add in decor of your choice to boost the room's aesthetic.

  • That's up to you. In general, aim to hang floating shelves as you would artwork, ideally 4-6 feet from the floor. If you are hanging a floating shelf above furniture, such as a desk, dresser, or couch, hang it 10-12 inches above the top.
