Buying a floating shelf for your home is very common. It’s a great way to free up space by keeping things on your wall. Stores like Walmart and IKEA carry various styles that you can choose from. But this particular floating shelf is incredibly stylish and unique. The shelves are connected by ropes, which gives a sense of whimsy almost like a lot ladder leading up to a treehouse. Even though this looks to be loose, you could always add extra nails to ensure that each shelf is sturdy.
If you would rather not nail these shelves to the wall, you can always let it hang loose, like the photo above. When it’s hanging, we recommend that you don’t put anything too heavy on the shelf, just in case it falls. A lot of the example images show people using these shelves as a place to store their plants. It could also potentially be dangerous if you live in an area where you’re prone to get earthquakes. And if you have children, this might be a temptation for them to swing it. With all things considered, we hope that if you buy this, it will be safe, stylish, and sturdy for years to come.
