STEP 1: Distress Metal Brackets

To achieve that old and textured look, use your orbital sander with a finer sandpaper for a smooth finish.

STEP 2: Measure and Mark Drill Points

A good rule of thumb is to have the top of your shelf be 18" above your countertop. So, for a 2" shelf, measure up 16" from your counter.

STEP 3: Make a Hole and Set Anchor

Using your drill and a drilling bit sized for your anchor, drill your holes and tap each anchor in with a hammer. Repeat for each bracket.

STEP 4: Screw in Brackets

Use your impact driver and impact-rated driving bit to attach your brackets to the wall.

STEP 5: Put Shelf Up

Once you have attached all your brackets, set your shelf on top. For extra reinforcement, you can drive screws through the top of each bracket into the underside of the shelf.

STEP 6: Clean Up and Style

Grab your wet/dry vacuum to clean up any debris and decorate!
