How is this shelf attached?

Recommended Posts


I saw these seemingly simple shelves and was curious how they are attached. It looks like it's probably 3/4" ply with a 1.5" or so face frame (would you agree?). But there are:

  • no L-brackets in the back
  • if I'm right about the material thickness, it's not a "floating shelf" (with those metal "posts" that you'd slide the shelf onto poking out of the back wall)
  • no cleats on the side walls

So... magic? haha. If this was a bookcase with wood sides, I suppose it would be tiny little shelf pins, but it looks like drywall. So maybe the question is how do you make something like shelf pins poke out of drywall?

Any insights/guesses are appreciated!
