DIY easy shelves and letter decor

Step one is pretty easy. Cut your MDF trim and your corner piece the same length. Using a product like No More Nails, glue the corner piece to the bottom edge of the MDF. Clamp and dry.

Once it is dry, remove the clamps and sand the shelf. I didn’t bother to paint the shelf because I wanted a distressed look.

Decide what word you would like to spell and purchase the letters. There are many different styles of wooden letters available for purchase.

We referenced John 15:5.

“I am the vine; you are the branches. Whoever abides in me and I in him, he it is that bears much fruit, for apart from me you can do nothing.”

We made two shelves. On the second shelf, we decided to spell the keyword abide.

We stained the letters in a walnut finish.

 

We sat the shelves on a bookcase, but alternatively, they are easily hung on the wall.
