Prime and Paint
Apply all-purpose primer to shelf with a 2-1/2" sash brush. Make sure to paint underside of shelf, since it may be visible once shelf is hung. Allow dry time and apply two coats of latex paint. Tip: Lightly sanding between coats will minimize appearance of brush strokes.
Determine placement of the cabinet. Position 1x2 board to fit on the wall under the bottom shelf and behind the base molding. Use a level to ensure the shelf will hang straight. Drill pilot holes through the board and wall. Insert screws to hold securely to the wall. Install the "L" bracket on top of the cabinet. Place the cabinet on the wall, resting on the cleat, and screw the "L" bracket into wall. Tack a few nails through the bottom shelf into the cleat to hold the shelf securely in place. Fill with baskets and toiletries. Tip: If installing in drywall, locate a stud to insert at least one screw in. If stud placement doesn't line up with shelf placement, use wall anchors.
