I am on a roll this week. And if I’d known how much easier it would be to hang this shelf I’d have done it a month ago. After having to drill and re-drill and then patch the wall for the shelf above my work desk, I admit I procrastinated a bit

Here’s the before:
And how it looked in-between :
I ended up having to do some pretty extensive drywall mudding and painting to repair the damage that peeling off the glued on cork and wallpaper did. But it looks pretty good now, if I say so myself:
I am quite pleased with how this turned out – not only is the wall color nice but the floating shelf makes the outlets in the middle of the wall much more useful and look as if they belong there. Big improvement over what was there before.
As for how long it will remain so tidy and uncluttered, all bets are off…
