Care & Hanging
Here are our best tips for keeping your Wood Chip Decor bright and colourful for years to come.
Hanging Your Floating Shelves
You can purchase your hanging hardware from us, but if you'd prefer to choose your own anchors and screws at any hardware store, like Rona, Home Depot, Home Hardware, or Canadian Tire.
To begin, each shelf will need a different number of screws and anchors, so count the number of holes in the back of your shelf. You'll need one screw per hole and we strongly recommend using anchors.
The type of anchor you need will depend on what kind of wall you're mounting into, such as drywall, plaster and lathe, wood, concrete, etc). If you're not sure what kind of anchor you'll need, be sure to ask someone at your hardware store.
Examples of drywall anchors.
We recommend #8 screws between 2 1/2" to 3" long. If you don't have #8 screws, you can use any other type as long as the head is about 3/8", which is the size of the holes in the shelf.
Example of a 2 1/2" #8 screw.
LAYOUT & HANGING
Once you have your hardware, lay out your design on a table or the floor. Then start hanging with your inside shelves and work your way out.
This video will walk you through the steps we suggest for hanging your shelves.
Caring for Tableware
All our tableware items are clearcoated with a matte finish to protect them from wear and damage through use.
To clean your coasters, trays, or trivets, wipe them with a damp cloth. While they are water resistant, do not submerge or soak them in water. If dirt or debris gets stuck in one of the grooves, use a toothbrush or other small bristled brush to remove it.
Our trivets are designed for use on tables to protect the table finish from the warmth of bowls or plates, but they are not meant to be used for hot pans and pots right from the oven or stove-top.
