Anybody else dying over the price of lumber in the mean time?! We certain are! So, I’ve spent the previous couple of weeks specializing in initiatives that may eat up my scrap pile or solely take a board or 2. My children just lately performed musical rooms (one among their favourite hobbies) and my son wanted some cabinets for his new room. I used to be capable of construct these cabinets for $15 a bit, and I like the best way they turned out!
Try the how-to video under!
How cute are they?? I used THESE BRACKETS I discovered on Amazon. I purchased the 6″ dimension. A set of 4 is $15.99 with free transport.
For my lumber I used this 2x6x8 board to create the shelf. Sure, it’s 3x the associated fee it as soon as was, however one will construct two of those cabinets!
I used my stud finder to test the partitions for studs earlier than attaching my brackets. Mine is older and unavailable to buy anymore, however THIS ONE is a good choice! Tremendous inexpensive and nice critiques.
If you’re mounting into drywall like I did, it would be best to use good anchors. My favourite EVER are these anchors! I exploit them on a regular basis. So easy and robust!
I used Golden Oak stain by Rustoleum for the end. I like this stain shade these days! And these things dries so fast.
These cabinets may be inbuilt just a few easy steps!
First, test for studs and use your pencil to mark the place the screws are on the primary bracket.
Subsequent, use a stage to mark the place the opposite bracket must go.
Connect the pace anchors on the marks you made on the wall.
Subsequent, line the bracket up over the 4 anchors within the wall and drive screws via the bracket holes and into the holes of the anchors.
As soon as all brackets are connected, minimize the wooden to dimension. I’m utilizing one 2x6x8 minimize to 40″ every. I stained each of my boards at this level.
The ultimate step is attaching the wooden to the brackets via the holes within the brackets and into the wooden boards.
I like how they turned out! He liked serving to me choose all of the goodies that went on them too!
