FLOATING SHELVES !!

Post by Magic8Ball » Wed Jan 07, 2015 12:08 am

What a crap idea........put the smallest object on them and within a week they are pointing towards the floor and nothing will sit on them :twisted: Probably one of the crappiest ideas i've ever encountered .................... :wink:

So i can keep on an even keel this year i've decided to remove all Floating Shelves from my life .......Happy 2015 :wink:

May I be so bold as to ask where these "floating shelves" came from?. A small Swedish company perhaps? I've made and installed them myself in customers homes and they were rock solid.

He was probably standing on them to reach the work tops.

I mounted them a couple of foot of the floor to be sure :wink:

I'm sure the taller brigade must be using them as ladder rungs that's why they are drooping :wink:
