|Studio paint table, before|
|Studio, shelves installed, only 10 minute job!|
|Studio shelves and paint table after 15 minutes|
Handy Home tip: hold the shelf up to the wall and make a small mark where you want the top of it to go. Then use a level to draw a line along that mark. Set your screws into your shelf and screw to the wall, start with one in the middle, with your shelf top lined up with your straight and level line. Then do each end screw.
After I set the shelves in place I set my timer for 15 minutes and began cleaning off the paint table. There are still a few things on each end of the table to deal with, but at least the middle is empty and ready for a painting session. That is a very good thing because I have another pet portrait commission to work on!
If you don't have a portable drill, you should get one! I have tendonitis in my elbows. My portable drill can drive screws easily which would otherwise take me all day and make my elbows hurt really bad.
This one is very similar to mine. (mine is just older)
