My daughter had two single wardrobes and a pile of books in her bedroom and no space to put anything down. So I came up with these MDF built-in shelves, that I basically made up as I went along. The six short shelves and the two longer ones are ‘floating’ shelves where batterns are screwed to the wall, the shelves slide over the batterns and are screwed to the battern through the top of the shelves. they are also screwed to the two wardrobes from the inside. The resulting structure is solid as a rock. Cheap and cheerful storage. My wife said she was going to paint it 18 months ago, so I don’t hold out much hope now!

Brit, I think that you showed quite a lot of imagination in doing those shelves since you designed them as you went along and they are an unusual design; but they look to be quite handy and seem to be serving their purpose quite well. I’m sure that your daughter was very pleased with the whole outcome and I congratulate you on the good work.
