Brass Shelf Brackets

By Kate Riley September 28, 2016

I’m looking to add more storage to a few spaces around the house and open shelving is on my mind. Floating shelves are lovely of course, they have appeal due to their clean lines. There is something equally as appealing as shelving with beautiful brass brackets, adding both support and a bit of bling. They look especially wonderful with wood shelves and extra elegant with marble shelves.

But who says you need to spend the big bucks on brass. If you don’t want to drop cash on the real deal, spray paint is your best friend! Get the look for less by using gold leaf or brass colored spray paint to a basic bracket (these ones have a great shape) like these bloggers did below.

Spray painted brackets can be just as beautiful!


  1. Those shelf brackets are amazing! Especially the deco-ish ones that sort of fan out- so much style for such a small item!

    If you have time, check out my post today on shopping ‘Antique + Chic’ with modern online auctions. They are actually a really fun way to shop and you can find some really beautiful authentic furniture pieces for less than half of their full retail price!


  2. I get jealous every time I read your house touring posts, Kate. This brackets is beautiful uniquely! Looking forward to other posts like this one! XOXO
