Instructions

Step 1

For a shelf beneath a window, insert the metal mounting bracket halfway into the back edge of the shelf and hold the shelf and bracket in position on the wall. It should be centered beneath the window with the top face of the shelf against the underside of the window trim. While holding the bracket steady, remove the shelf and mark the mounting screw locations on the bracket.

Good to Know

If you decide to mount the shelf elsewhere on the wall, use a level to align the bracket and mark the mounting screw locations. Add wall anchors as needed.

Step 2

Screw the bracket to the wall below the window. Slide the shelf onto the bracket.

Step 3

Apply a coat of paint (Ultra White shown) to all or part of the pots. If you paint the entire pot, paint the inside as well.
