Floating shelf install4/29
I am quoting a few floating shelves for a customers bedroom where she would like to store a few books and other small things. I have done a few shelves like this in the past and feel comfortable with hanging in a few different ways, with all thread, cleat blocking and manufactured hardware by Lee Valley. My problem with this layout is the size and location of the shelves in relation to my anchor points. Please see attached drawing showing the corner of the room these shelves are to be in. I am concerned because I really only have one stud to secure to and even though these will not be holding large amounts of weight, it is not going to work. How would you guys attach these shelves in this circumstance? If it makes a difference these walls are plaster. Thanks for any and all advice.

I do a bunch of those!
Look more like hanging boxes. Do they have a back? When without studs I always reach for hollow wall anchors ( togglers are good) and the Liquid Nail . Be there forever
Will u pls put up a link to the exact psge where I can see the metal hardware offerings to mount to the wall for the floating shelves? Thanks!
