You’ve got all these bowl, but how do you show off your sports awards in a way that fits in with your design? A trophy shelf is a tasteful way to recognize your accomplishments and display the awards you’ve received in acknowledgement. Watch this video for tips for creating a DIY trophy shelf.

After donning your safety glasses, cut down a sheet of MDF to the size you want your shelf to be. Add a layer of primer and then paint it the color of your choice using a sponge brush. Take a baseball bat and split it vertically in half, and then cut them horizontally to match the height of your shelves. Then you can put up your L brackets and mount your shelves. Nail the bats to the wall so they look like they’re split by the shelves, and put up your trophies.
