12 DIY Floating Shelves

A floating mirror and shelf in a bathroom


These DIY floating shelves appear to "float" on the wall because the hardware is hidden from sight. They're a little more complicated to build than a traditional wall shelf, but still a great project for a beginner builder. It's also a quick project meaning that you'll get to enjoy your new shelves sooner than later.

You can use these DIY floating shelves anywhere in your home from the bathroom to the living room. They make a great home for decorative items and books but built on a larger scale, they're also great to use for general storage.
