Step 1: Decide where on the wall you want to attach the shelf. Measure the length of the book. Then measure this length out on the wall, marking the two end spots with a pencil. Next, measure and mark the points about 1½inch to 2 inches in from each side. This is where you will attach the 3½"-inch bottom brackets.
