DIY Skateboard shelves

Materials needed:
1 small skate board,
1 larger skate board,
4 L-brackets, wall screws & matching bolts.

Tools needed:
Power drill with drill bit & screw bit,
A marker pen to mark where to drill holes,

Do it yourself Skate Board Shelves
Are those real skate boards on the wall? Yes they are, and you too can make these shelves with the help of your older boys. What is cooler than a Mom that knows how to use power tools? Well, even if it does not exalt you to Coolest Mom Ever status, these shelves are sure to get raves from their skater buddies.

Place the skate board deck side down, place the L-brackets on the inside of the wheels and mark with a pen where the holes will go. Remove the brackets and drill the holes. Thread the bolt and screw through the hole and bolt the bracket to the underside of the skate board. Screw the L-bracket into the wall using the wall screws.

Now adorn with your favorite Guy stuff like Collector Sport memorabilia and ball caps.
