Sometimes you want storage. You want all the doors, cubbies, drawers, and shelves you can get. Like with this toy storage cabinet. And other times, you just want something small and simple that doesn’t take up a lot of space but just does its job. Like this DIY floating TV shelf.
It’s just enough to hold a TV, a DVD player and a few accessories, like a modem and wireless router. Nothing fancy, nothing extra, just exactly what is needed. It leaves your floor space open, and doesn’t allow you that extra cabinet space to hoard junk (you know what I’m talking about…the junk cabinet 😉 don’t act like you don’t have one haha).
The build is super simple and just requires a few standard tools, a 2×4 and 1/4 sheet of plywood. You’ll have it built, finished, and hung on the wall in no time. Pinky promise 🙂
Oh, and you know what’s nice about open floor space? That’s less places for your dust bunnies to hide and it’s easy to vacuum. It’s sad that I know this….from experience….
Anyway, I’ve got the how to for you for this super easy DIY floating TV shelf over on Pretty Handy Girl today so be sure to click over and check it out!
I just love how simple and clean this space looks with just this floating shelf to hold the TV. It’s even got holes to run all the cords you’ll ever need!
Even if you don’t want to use this for a TV, it’s a great little storage shelf that you could use for a small bedside table, or even for a small entryway for a place to set your keys or hide your mail. It’s super easy to make to whatever size you need. I’m actually thinking about making another one of these for my entryway and add some shallow drawers in the cubbies. How cute, right?!
So, if you are ready to get building your own, click over to Pretty Handy Girl for the tutorial 🙂
But first, don’t forget to pin this for later 🙂 Oh, and let me know how you could use one of these open floating shelves in the comments below!
And if you love the modern, clean, floating furniture style, but can’t commit to something so small, check out this modern vanity that also doubles as a TV console. It’s got a large open shelf and two large drawers!
I have a feeling I may be building some more floating pieces soon, so if you’re a fan, keep an eye out 😉
Until next time, happy building! 🙂
