How To Install a Floating Shelf

If you are anything like me and intimidated to buy a product online that will need any installation in fear of future headaches, inferior mounting materials, or wrong directions. In that case, I hope that this post brings you a little security. Here at Willow and Grace, we not only want to create beautiful high-quality shelves that look great, but we also want to build floating shelves that are easy to install and will stand the test of time on your walls.
When we decided to start the wild ride of entering the home decor market and bringing the best product at the lowest cost to our customers, a strong bracket system was a must-have. We understand the frustration of getting something on your wall only to have it slope or look crooked. In the past, when I would unpack wall decor that contained anchors, I would break into a cold sweat, never actually use them and hope for the best πŸ˜‚. I never realized how important they were to secure an item to your wall until I started Willow and Grace with my dad and brother.
With the correct tools πŸͺ› and anchors, these shelves are ridiculously easy to get up! No matter where you are on your DIY journey, we promise that you can do it πŸ™Œ! We even created this quick video to walk you through the process. We hope this calms your nerves and helps you add a little more beauty to your home!Β

I feel like once a year, I get this itch to redo a room. I don't know if I am watching too much HGTV or what, but I can't stop myself from looking at the room in a whole new life and entirely wanting to transform it. My husband has typically talked me down from the ledge and taken the sledgehammer before I take the entire room down to its studs πŸ˜‚. It is so easy to feel like a room needs a complete transformation to love it again, but a little bit of furniture repositioning and a few new key decor pieces can completely change the look of a space for a fraction of the price.Β

Who doesn't love a good ole' antique? I always think it is funny when people purchase new decor that is supposed to look old and worn. When decorating my shelves, I always love to mix some seasonal new items with my timeless antiques. I feel like it adds to the character of the space. Adding in new and old things help to add life and dimension to your home, and in my opinion, they help to give it the feeling of being lived in, and if you are a bargain hunter, you can find many of them ridiculously cheap at flea markets, thrift stores or yard sales.Β
