Our gorgeous ready to paint picture shelves are perfect for displaying your photos, paintings, album covers; in fact anything you want to display beautifully and safely. These handy shelves are beautifully simple to install and ready for you to paint in the finish of your choice to blend or contrast with your existing decor.

More choice than ever!

Now you can choose whether you want your shelves in MDF (beautifully easy to paint as there are no knots and absolutely no splinters!) or in solid pine (easy to paint, wash, varnish, oil or wax). You can also choose whether your want your shelves to have straight or curved ends.

These shelves are also available in 4 beautiful solid woods: maple, oak, walnut and cherry.

When working out the required depth of your picture shelf, please note that the depth shown is the external depth, so the usable shelf space will be approximately 2.5cm less than the external depth. These shelves are made with straight corners as standard, but can be curved; just let us know in the order notes section if you’d like the ends curved! (If you want to see how this would look, pop over to the solid wood picture shelves here and have a look at the oak shelf below the main picture).

As with all of our shelving, our picture shelves can be made to your length and depth specifications; if you can’t see the size you’re after, just contact us and if you have any questions about any of our products, please feel free to contact us either by calling us or emailing us via the website; we’re always happy to help! If you’d like your shelves to be shorter than 40cm, order them at 40cm long and then let us know the lengths required in the order notes section (you’ll find this at the bottom of the page where you enter your billing and delivery address details).

We’re confident that, as well as offering superb quality shelving, we offer great value for money. Check our price match promise here:

Our picture shelves are installed using keyhole fixings routed into the back of the backplate (the bit that meets the wall). We provide you with a pack of fixings (wall plugs and screws) so you just need to drill into the wall, insert the screws, leaving a bit sticking out, and then slot the shelf over the screws. Because the holes are in a keyhole shape, the round part goes over the screw, the shelf drops down and the screw head is nice and snugly fitted into the narrow part of the keyhole shape.

If you have wooden studs behind the plasterboard in your house and you’d like to get a fix into them, you can always let us know where you’d like the fixing holes to be (eg 20cm in from the right end, 30cm in from the left etc).

The other way to fit these shelves is to drill into the wall, pop your wall plugs into the holes and then drill though the back plate and screw through the back plate into the corresponding holes in the wall. If you’re planning to paint the shelves, you can just pop a bit of filler over the screw heads before applying your final coat of paint.

All of our shelves are straightforward for a DIY enthusiast to install and come with all of the fixings you’ll need but you may want to consult and use a professional tradesperson for your installation.

Before we dispatch your shelves, we protect the edges with heavy-duty protective edging. Your shelves are then carefully wrapped in recycled and recyclable foam packaging and shrink wrapped to ensure that you receive them in pristine condition.
