Which was a little tricky because I have thin builder grade kitchen cabinets. There just isn’t enough wood in the cabernet wall to hold a nail for a picture let alone the weight of a lightweight shelf.
But it can be done and all you need is a simple wine cork.
How to Hang a Shelf with a Recycled Wine Cork
You will need the following:
Shelf bracket – this is cube shelf bracket is similar to the type I used.
Wood shelf – My shelf and bracket used to hang in my living room. You can find unique light weight shelves for your kitchen here
Wine cork – you can buy wine corks here if you don’t have any at home

Step by Step How to Make it Tutorial
1. Use the ruler to determine where you want to hang the shelf bracket on the side of your kitchen cupboard and mark the area with the pencil.
2. Use the electric drill t drill a pilot hole on the area you marked in Step 1.
3. Screw the shelf bracket to the cupboard and into the wine cork on the other side of the pilot hole.
4. Install the shelf onto the shelf bracket.
5. Grow small plants!
