Wall shelf brackets…Nope! Hanging file system!

EKBY STODIS wall shelf brackets

Description: I saw someone else do this with the EKBY BJARNUM brackets however I didn’t want to spend $20 to create a hanging file folder system. Instead I took a little trip to IKEA and came home with the EKBY STODIS brackets instead which were only 50 cents each!

Install the brackets just as you would if you were to install a shelf. Make sure to measure and square the installation correctly. Hang the folders. Simple and nice for a small space by a desk.

    This is one of the cleverest, upside-down-thinking hacks ever. That it’s one of the cheapest doesn’t hurt either!

    Lovely idea! Thanks for sharing.

  3. I have about a 5” – 6” gap between the edge of my desk and the wall which was perfect for the hanging file system. The things rolled up below are throws from Urban Outfitters. They just magically stayed there when I pulled my desk away from the wall to get the right angle to screw the shelves in.

    I am happy to hear you will get your $1.50 hanging file solution!

    What do you have below the brackets? It looks like blankets but how did you attatch them?
