I fiddled with them for a while and came up with these. I made the shelf with a 3/4 inch wide tongue depressor, then stained it with Folk Art maple stain. Who knew that tongue depressors have such a nice wood grain?
Sadly, my favorite Instant Krazy Glue was empty so I had to clamp the brackets to the wood with Tacky Glue. Here is the little shelf finished.
Hope you have a great day!
