Flexi Storage Clever Cube 410 x 760 x 390mm 1 x 2 Storage Unit
The first thing you'll need to do is to measure your cube shelf to see how wide it will be on the wall. We measured the internal space (the spot where the baskets will go), as that's where our brackets will attach. As we're turning the cube onto its side, we measured the long edge.
Using a handy stud finder (you can pick one of these up from Bunnings), locate your wall studs – these are the secure anchor points you can drill straight into to secure your shelf. When you find a stud, mark the wall with a pencil. Our studs were 600mm apart which was perfect for our cube shelf. If yours don't match up, you will need to use a wallmate to secure your shelf.
Grab a friend and lift up your shelf to the spot you want to hang it. Use a pencil to mark out the top of the shelf – this will be where you'll need to mount your brackets. Use a level to make sure your brackets are installed straight.
Secure your brackets to the wall using an impact driver – don't forget to wear eye and ear protection for this bit. If you don't have one of these, feel free to use a regular drill – the impact driver just makes it faster and easier. Once your shelf brackets are attached, grab your level and make sure they're straight – when the bubbles are at the centre you're good to go.
Before you attach your shelf to the wall you'll need to drill some screw holes to the frame of the shelf. Have your friend hold the shelf to the brackets so you can mark up where you'll need to drill. So you don't drill your pilot holes too deep, using masking tape and mark up half the length of your screw on your drill. Once you have this as a guide you're ready to drill your pilot holes.
Position your pilot holes in the right spot in relation to your brackets and screw them in. You can use a drill for this bit or a good old-fashioned screwdriver.
By positioning your cube shelf – usually a floor item – onto the wall, you've now regained stacks of valuable floor space. You've also fashioned a stylish storage solution for home. Winning!
