Hang ‘em up!
Materials: Ekby Tryggve shelves, metal chains, four sturdy hooks, four small hooks for each shelf
Description: I’ve just moved into a new place and I like raw materials – wood, metal etc. One of many DIY projects was to create a hanging shelf. I used three Ekby Tryggve shelves, chains, and hooks.
This is how I did it:
1. I measured where I wanted the shelf to hang from the ceiling, drilled holes and screwed sturdy hooks into the ceiling from where the chains would hang.
2. I drilled four small holes on the sides of each of the Tryggve shelves. I used three shelves but you could use more than that. I screwed small hooks into each hole, with the hook opening facing down.
3. I hung four chains (in this case 5 feet each) from the ceiling hooks, then hooked the three Tryggve shelves onto the chain. Done!
