So I wanted to add some floating shelves from in the corners in my room, just to basically put some knickknacks and figurines corners are very important, though, because it will support the shelf from both sides. So you have to put this in a corner somewhere and you can't just basically mount it from the back with these adhesive because it will just flop over and fall down. So corners are very important in this, so using some 3m command strips for picture frames, you can essentially stick them on the wall, so these strips are similar to velcro but they're much stronger.
There is no hook or loop side. Instead, both strips have the same or the same on both sides, and then you just basically join them together, like velcro. The great thing about the 3m strips is that they come off the wall easily, just by pulling the tab these, lock shelves go for about. Seven dollars each and they are 11 by 10 about 11 by 10 inch in size and they are 2 inches thick. The longer lock shelves that you find out are probably too heavy, so I wouldn't recommend doing that even with, even if you can support it with two sides from in a corner so on the backside of the shelf. Since the strips won't stick on wood, nails or a staple gun can be used to hold the strip's onto the shelf.
I used four sets of these 3m large command strips for each shelf. I put a pair on the two sides of the shelf that would stick on the wall. Then, on the smooth side, you can use the adhesive to fasten it on the shelf next measure and figure out where you want to put the shelves. I leave a gap of about ten or twelve inches between each shelf, but you may make it the gap wider. If you want, then all you have to do is stick it on the wall and then what I do is I found it in firmly.
You know tapping it in place and make sure you feel that the 3m command strips are sticking to the wall and also that both the velcro pieces are sticking together. And you can tell that if it's actually holding together just by putting a little bit of pressure on the the the shelf itself and it shouldn't move at all, and it should be pretty firm. And that's when you know that the shelf is on the wall. Nice and nice and stable, and it shouldn't fall off. So here are a few things that I put on my shelf.
Most of the things I have aren't too heavy, so it should be fine. You can put action figures. I put a camera in there a few Rubik's cubes, so these are the type of things that you may want to put on there, that shouldn't be too heavy and if they did fall down. If you know the adhesives just gave up one day, you know you're not gonna break anything.
