Step 7: Hang Shelves. We used 3 of these swivel hangers on the back of each shelf so there was one on each end and the middle.
We used “Hercules Hooks” to attach the shelves to the wall. There are a lot of different names for these and you can get them at any hardware store or WalMart. The nice thing about these hooks, is that you can hang things directly into the wall without being in a stud. Each hook holds up to 150 pounds, so this is definitely strong enough to hold books.
I hung them low enough so our little guy could get to his books by himself and he LOVES it!
