Directions for Snowboard Shelf

-Keep your snowboard boot braces attached to the snowboard. Use these as your wall mounts.
-Find a stud to anchor at least one of the boots into, using screws and metal wall anchors. (If you have a large or heavy trophy collection, buy your screws and wall anchors according to the weight you need).

Directions for Baseball Shelf

-Measure and cut a plywood piece to match the size of home plate.
-Cut a 1x2 inch strip of wood the width of the base (the side against the wall). This strip will act as the support for the shelf.
-Paint the plywood to the color of your choosing, but the real base will be covering most of the plywood (We went with black.)
-Measure the height of your bat, angling it to meet the center of the “shelf.” (The bat will help support the shelf).
-Screw your mounting strip (1x2 wood strip) at the bat height.
-Screw the back end of your home plate shaped plywood onto the mounting strip, wedging the bat into place between the floor and the “shelf.”
-Use one screw to hold the bat into place underneath the plywood base.
-Place home plate on top of the shelf, covering the plywood and the screw going into the bat.

Directions for Basketball Shelf

-Using your basketball hoop, trace the circle inside the rim onto the plywood (sand the edges if needed to make a perfect fit.) The net hooks should be able to support the plywood.
-Stain the board to your choosing (we went with the color that emulates the traditional basketball floor.)
-Attach the basketball hoop to the wall as you would normally attach it to the backboard. (we chose to put a piece of plywood behind it to add a bit of strength. Buy screws and wall anchors according to your needed weight for trophies.)

Directions for Figure Skating Shelf

-Mount your figure skate blades to the wall using screws. The blades already have holes in them from where they are already attached to the skate boot. We mounted ours horizontally, but you can also mount them vertically!
