hello to you.

just another easy diy here that won't cost you alot of time or money.

this shelf was so easy to make that i completed it before taking any step by step pictures! trust me, you won't need them.

the materials ...
+wood board (cut to your desired length)
+pair of leather shoelaces
+a drill (for making holes into your board)
+a pencil
+a ruler or tape measure
+and a wall hanger (i used a picture frame hanger that would support 30lbs)

the method ...
+decide how far in from the edge you would like your holes using your tape measure and mark them off with a pencil.
+drill your holes. i would start with a small drill bit and test to see if you can run the shoelace thru.  if not, slightly increase the size.  don't make the holes too large as the knots you will make to keep the laces in place will pull right thru.
+starting on one side, place each end of a shoelace thru a hole (repeat on the other side) and knot each underneath your board.
+gather your shoelaces tightly at the top and decide how low you would like the shelf to hang.
+knot your laces together  and use the loop created to hang on the wall.

this can be made in a short amount of time and you can be creative with your shelf by adding a little paint or wood stain that best compliments your vibe.

peace to your heart.
later.
