You are probably thinking... is she really going to attempt that? The answer is YES!

I figured that she only screwed in about 10 screws... how hard can it be, right? :S Our home is typical of coat racks and hooks that soon fallout of drywall only to leave gaping ugly holes in the wall. I was way excited about having some hardware in our home that would be glued to the wall somehow.
In her blog, Melissa talks about finding the studs and (studs?? what are those) drilling the shelves right into them.
I even bought one of those cute little stud finders like she suggests and walla.... I did find them. I got out Mr. T's drill and went to town. Oh, did I mention, that my son, John painted the walls a water chestnut eggshell first? Love it!
|Screwed my onyx painted board to the "studs". :) Added my softly sanded black painted corbels...|
|I do amaze myself. Mr. T would be proud|
|Okay, it wasn't as easy shmeasy as I thought and it definitely used more than 10 screws, but it was definitely worth it! *and I don't think that shelf is coming down anytime soon.|

|Last but not least, I hung the little sign back up above the entry way door. I have to be careful because last time I saw this sign, one of the kids had taped an "L" over the "R" on pray. Word to the wise... don't forget to do both!|
