Book up top, rail below





Materials: Ekby Valter brackets, Dignitet curtain rail system

Description: Spanning about 5m, this is a practical book shelf at head height with an integrated rail for clipping photos, postcards or basically any signiciant tosh lying around your flat.

I used 7 Ekby Valter brackets spaced at about 0.8m centres. Timber was supplied from my local timber merchants (ie not Ikea!) and painted, as well as the brackets before fitting to the wall. The Dignitet rail system is then attached to the underside of the shelf and threaded through the brackets. Curtain clips or some beefy bulldogs (not Ikea) used for hanging larger items.

    I LOVE this… about how much did it cost to put together the cabinets and counter top? Total?
