How to create a built in shelf
Second, I framed in the bottom with pine, but you can use left over molding as well. Also, I used a finish nailer to hold everything in place.
The shelf didn't fit perfectly against the wall... so it is a good thing we have caulk!
Next, I caulked all the spaces and filled all the screw hole. When caulking make sure you use acrylic painter's caulk. Consequently, if it has silicone in it your paint will NOT stick to the caulk. Last of all, once everything was dry I sanded, primed and painted it the same color as my moldings so it would look like it was built in and not a piece of furniture we screwed to the wall! Now this once odd corner is a great place to house some of my favorite home decor items!
