Look! Corner Shelves Without Drilling

Look! Corner Shelves Without Drilling

We share a thin wall that divides our home office from our wonderful next door neighbor's bedroom, preventing us from drilling additional storage onto or against that particular wall in fear of creating a permanent peep hole. Our home office is already pretty cramped as it is, so we're always looking for additional storage space. And in terms of maximizing space, corner shelves are an excellent addition. But what to do when you can't mount shelves traditionally? An As Seen On TV solution to the rescue...

We won an eBay auction for a set of 4 of these Shelf Master corner shelves for under $10 with slightly low expectations. They're constructed of plastic, with a sliding mechanism underneath that pushes out one thin needle at the triangular front, and two short side blades. All three insert themselves into the wall, with a push button locking them all into place, creating a surprisingly strong onto the wall, holding up to 10lbs of weight. Not bad for a discount solution that won't leave any significant marks or damage to our wall.
