How to Install a Shelf

In this video, Richard from Made by the Forge takes you through the simple process of installing your wrought iron shelf brackets and shelf. Follow this how-to guide to ensure your shelf sits safe and sturdy on the wall while paying special attention to the shelf’s level.

Here’s what you will need to get started:

  • Shelf brackets
  • Wooden shelf
  • Screws
  • Wall plugs (depending on what you’re fastening to)
  • Spirit level
  • Tape measure
  • Drill
  • Screwdriver
  • Pencil
  • Something thin and sharp, to mark wood

Our iron shelf brackets and wooden shelf can be ordered completely bespoke to your measurements or as one of our ready measured shelf kits. If you have any questions about our shelves or any concerns about installing them, please don’t hesitate to get in touch. We are always happy to help.

All of these videos can also be found on the Made by the Forge YouTube channel. Follow us on YouTube for updates.
