Once you have the bigger pieces of furniture, you will need to decide on your shabby chic shelves. Remember, the furniture and shelves do not have to match, you just need to make sure they are closely related in colour (usually whites, creams, or other pastels). You also need to choose the items that you place on them with great care to make sure that you truly capture the correct style. You should think about the colours and textures of the items. Make use of old battered recipe books, white china, old alarm clocks, victorian chamber pots, candle votives, early spice racks, sepia framed photos, imperial kitchen scales, and of course lots and lots of fresh flowers.
Remember to ensure that they are capable of getting the job done right and on time. You could start by walking from supplier to supplier to see the samples they have in place from which you can choose the very best. You can also shop online for these Melamine boards cut to size and you will be surprised the options available to you. You do not have to buy something just because it is cheap; sometimes you will pay a little more for quality.
You may want to replace your standard blade that is circular and instead use a melamine saw blade. These kinds of blades have teeth that are made especially for cutting melamine to minimize the veneer chipping when you cut through it. Melamine faced chipboard requires a lot of skill and care. You will need to measure the panel that is intended for cutting, and then you can put a mark on it. You will need to repeat the process on both sides of the melamine because the cut will go on both sides of the piece. The next thing you will need to do set the blade to three quarters the depth of your melamine panel.
Let's look at shelving since it is the one used most frequently. Shelving can be found in two main forms: 1) site-built and 2) prefabricated. Site-built shelves work well because they allow you to adapt shelf size to the space available, making it easier to use the space more efficiently. The necessary materials should be available at your local hardware store, home center, and/or lumber yard.
If the second standard will not be installed over a stud in the wall, you may need to use wall anchors. Toggle bolts are the best types of wall anchors to utilize for this purpose. The wings are movable, and after the bolt and attachment are placed through the wall, the wings automatically open and hold the heavy item in place. Plastic wall anchors may also be utilized, but make certain they have the ability of securely supporting the weight of shelves and items that are to be displayed. Use a similar technique of adding center standards, if needed, but make certain that the toggle bolts will fit through the holes if they are to be used.
