Chunky Floating Shelf DIY

Floating shelves are everywhere these days… and I am not surprised since they are practical and pretty to look at. I needed a little something in my bathroom, which is on the smaller side. I decided a cabinet would be too large, so I created a floating shelf (I am currently working on shelf #2) instead.

I truly believe in reusing as much as I can. I had some old wood from an old fence and an extra piece of fiberglass panel from my shower project. Here is the tutorial I followed. I stained the wood with Minwax wood stain.

I love the fact that the wood is not perfect and the white fiberglass panel adds a nice contrast to the dark wood. The colors go well with my aqua walls and Java gel stained vanity and mirror.
