Brilliant job @Nkbarfield. Many thanks for sharing. What materials did you use for the job?

Everything was from Bunnings and all for just under $250. I used the Bunnings video to make my steel pipe that hangs from the roof and while I was in bunnings searching for the materials a lovely lady worker helped me with the idea of a cube shelf for the other side. We then thought of getting brackets that usually hang up a shelf and hiding them in the squares to give the idea of a floating shelf.
I wanted a small hang too so I just got the one that was already black to match my painted one from the ceiling. Different length screws for each thing and I reinforced with some timber in the ceiling for a bit more strength.
Great work @Nkbarfield. Many thanks for the extra detail.
For those who are inspired, I have attached the video below for the D.I.Y. industrial hanging clothes rail and the full step-by-step instructions can be found here - https://www.bunnings.com.au/diy-advice/home-improvement/shelving-and-storage/diy-industrial-hanging-...
Nice work @Nkbarfield - you have a lovely wide laundry there, and you additions are great! Congrats on realising that the “shower rail and fittings bay” is one of the best places to solve some of those how to “hang things” problems, especially on a budget 👍!!
Great job @Nkbarfield. The floating flexi cubes look fantastic.
Hi NKbarfield nice job on the floating cube
i am wondering what brackets you used to secure and was it too brick please, thats what i am wanting to achieve?
Welcome to the Workshop community. We're really pleased to have you join us and trust that you'll get loads of helpful advice and project inspiration from our wonderful members.
Let me tag @Nkbarfield for you, as well as a couple of other really capable members in @ProjectPete and @Brad, who might also like to share some advice with you about hanging the storage cubes on a brick wall.
Feel free to post anytime you need a hand or have something to share. And please let me know if you ever need assistance getting the most from the Workshop site.
I will have a think about that once the work day is done.
I would use the keyhole method to hold them up.
Screw heads stick out from the wall that fit in a hole and slot on what you are hanging, there are plates that screw over a hole or it can be routed into the back.
Love it @Nkbarfield. Well done.
Hi @DLMOORE @DLMOORE
I used these brackets hidden inside the shelves of the cube and secured them to 3 of the studs. The 4th bracket couldn't be secured to a stud so I used hollow wall anchor. Hope this helps 🙂
