INTRODUCTION Hi there! We're Josh & Emily, and we wanted to say, "Thanks!" for checking out our best-selling farmhouse floating shelf.
There is a LOT of info below so you can feel confident about your shelving purchase.
Otherwise -- ASK US!
Send me photos of your space. We are happy to talk through your storage options, providing our advice to guide you through selection/ordering questions.
We usually reply within just a couple of hours during the day!
1. WHAT WOOD IS THIS SHELF MADE FROM? High-grade knotty pine lumber.
There will be knots, knot holes, and other natural imperfections that create a worn, warm, rustic farmhouse feel.
The grain pattern of your shelves is unique, possibly causing your finish to look a little lighter or darker than samples shown.
2. HOW MANY SHELVES DO I GET? This listing is for ONE pine wood shelf. Each shelf will come with TWO pipe supports.
We include wood screws for install into drywall and studs (recommended), and a small bracket to secure the shelf to the pipe supports.
3. WHAT SIZE SHELF IS THIS FOR? Each floating shelf on this listing is 1.35"H (thick).
You choose your shelf size!
We list the shelf dimensions by: >> depth = out from the wall and >> length = left to right across the wall
For example, 7.25"D x 12"L means: The shelf comes 7.25 inches out from the wall and run 12 inches left to right across the wall. > > Note: The pipe support brackets will add at least 1 additional inch out from the wall. <<
4. I NEED A CUSTOM SIZE... Awesome! We custom-cut each shelf upon order.
We can usually accommodate varying depths and lengths, 47”L and under.
Please message us with the dimensions you need, and we'll send you a quote.
>> We must create a custom link just for you to purchase custom-size/color orders. <<
>> Due to Covid-19, we've capped our floating shelves to 47"L and under. <<
5. WHAT IF I WANT MORE MODERN SHELVES? Upgrade to Walnut or White Oak wood for cleaner lines, slightly thicker, beautiful, naturally-finished shelves. (Listings linked are for ONE shelf).
6. THIS IS GOING IN MY BATHROOM – IS IT WATERPROOF? We apply a clear Satin top coat to your shelf and pipe supports for water-resistance.
Wipe away drips, stains, spills, or pooling water to extend the life of the finish on your pieces.
7. HOW MUCH WEIGHT CAN THIS SHELF SUPPORT? When properly installed in studs or using heavy-duty toggler bolts, our industrial open shelf can hold 30-45+ lbs. pretty easily.
9. HOW LONG WILL THIS TAKE? Your order takes 10 business days to create from scratch.
PLUS 3-4 days in UPS ground transit, from here in Kansas City (Go Chiefs!)

10. CAN I RUSH THIS ORDER? Nope -- good things take time. We process our orders in the order we receive them. There are a few folks excited for us to finish up their shelves, first.
12. WHAT DOES UNSTAINED MEAN, EXACTLY? NO stain. NO clear Satin top coat. Ready for you to finish upon receipt.

That's our goal -- to build not only a quality product for you and your home, but also build real relationships with our customers. - Need a custom shelf length? Just ask :) - Want to match a custom stain color? Just ask :) - If you are unsure of what combination is best for your space, just ask :)
