I showed you this little powder room HERE, I told you that overall I like this small bath but there were some issues I wanted to address.
The most important thing we have to do right now is change the lavatory, it got damage when the little bottle on the second shelf (picture below), fell and cracked the bowl.
In the meantime I need to fix what cause that problem, storage space. That's the principal problem because those shelves look good, but they don't hold that much.
My solution: To install three floating shelves.
You can check the following video for complete instructions or you can continue reading the story.
I took off those boxes and traced level lines where I wanted to install the shelves.
Since they were going to be floating shelves, a cleat was installed to the wall to hold the shelves. For the cleats I used the cheapest kind of 1x2s. They were screwed to the wall with anchors where needed, and with nails to the studs.
When all the cleats were installed, it was a good time to fill in the holes and paint the wall.
