How to build floating shelves

Every single project that I've tackled for my home always brings its own set of memories. Happy, sad, or even exciting times come to ones mind when we see these projects displayed around our homes.

Building a set of minimalistic modern nightstands was one of the final projects I completed for the full makeover that my bedroom got a couple years ago.

I still remember the first set of nightstands I bought for this bedroom around 20 years ago. They were huge and bulky. Each of them had three big drawers that we kept full of unnecessary junk.
