Next, I measured where I wanted them on the wall.

I marked where the hooks were on the back of the corbels and transfered those marks to the wall.

Using my drill, I screwed in the wall anchors and screws.

Then, I hung the shelves. and painted them.

I chose to paint the shelves the same color as the wall.

This was great, because I had a patch on my wall that needed touched up as well.
