Floating shelves, Antique barn wood, ideal as open wood floating kitchen shelves, floating mantle, floating nightstand, open cabinets and so many more uses!
This listing is unique among all of our barn wood floating shelf lines. For folks that desire the most clearly aged and most rustic old barn wood…these shelves are created by me personally out of barn floor boards from one of several barns we have dismantled each built in the early to mid 1800’s here in central NY.
Offered in the size of 9″ or 12″ shelf depth (face to wall), these beautiful old barn boards started life as true cut two inch thick boards. After all the years as floor boards, these beauties have been worn down in thickness…and once milled into your true floating shelving, final thickness will be approx. 1 3/4″ thick of solid barn wood. Your choice of any length. On that note, if you desire a custom length not offered in this listing, kindly leave me a note with your order of the closest posted size, letting me know your exact needed size and I’ll happily create your custom fit/size shelf/shelves at no additional fee.
Easy to install with only a few basic tools needed and perhaps 10 minutes of your time per each shelf. All hardware and instructions included. Please let me know if your wall type is other than drywall or plaster… with wood wall studs. IF you have anything else for your walls, I’ll need to adjust your hardware to work well for your needs (also at no cost to you, my pleasure in fact!)
-solid 100% reclaimed and well over 100 year old barn wood
-Free Shipping via UPS ground with tracking to any lower 48 US state location. All other locations please shoot me a message for fair shipping pricing
-Ships in two weeks time or less. Please let me know if you have specific timing needs as I can often build at night via my expedited build speed option. I’m happy to work around your timing needs if at all possible!
-easy Do It Yourself installation that yields around 50lbs weight capacity (and often as much as 80lbs capacity per shelf!) Each shelf mounts flush to your wall with zero visible hardware showing in any way. Shelf strength depends on shelf length, depth and your wall stud situation (more studs = more strength.) Short shelves not possible to secure to two wall studs will include hardware for drywall anchor installation as well as one stud install.

-custom colors are possible too… shoot me a photo for any special color you may desire
-Artisan Sculpted corners and edging is default (rounded corners and edges in the style we’ve become so well known for) OR if you desire a more modern look simply let me know that you want Square edging and I’ll be happy to create your shelves just the way you love most!
