I saw this shelf originally on Pinterest but couldn't actually find a DIY for it. It seemed fairly simple so I decided to just go for it - how hard could it be right? This was actually such a great DIY because I live in an apartment and can't make large holes or nail shelves to the wall so this leaning shelf is P E R F E C T !
I went to our local home improvement store and bought a large piece of pine wood that was already pre-cut to the size I needed (180cm by 45cm) and then grabbed 2 more pieces of timber that were (I think) about 140cm by 15cm and had them cut them down to match the width of the larger piece (45cm). I choose this because the depth of 15cm felt good for the shelves size. Most stores will cut the wood for free and I had enough to make 4 shelves plus a little left over for another project.
Then I sanded down any edges that needed it and measured where I wanted each shelf to go (I spaced them 35 cm apart from the top down). Then using wood glue I just glued each shelf to the place where I had marked (wipe excess glue with paper towel) and then clamped them down for a couple hours while the glue dried. Once it was dry, I asked my handy husband to help me drill 3 screws per shelf (one on each side and another in the middle - sorry I forgot to take photos of this step) into each shelf.
Then decorate! My favourite part!
