The soup cans ,, LOL , wouuld be put on the bottom of the shelf like brackets , I would put them open end toward the room , so I could put stuff in them,

you would have to have a long screw driver to attach it to the wall. of course you could paint the cans and file them , or decupage , or what ever ,, LOL I don't know if it would actually work. I hate wild hairs too, and I have alot of them.If you know the lady that is going to buy the space bags ,, It can be done with reg. garbage bags , you put the vacum hose in and just hold it tight , then put the rubber band on it..Thanks for your response, Teresa

The big box stores have brackets for mantels--I know-- you don't want brackets. But if you put anything of weight on the shelf-- you need some strength to hold it up. I used them plus a board for a shelf for a entry. Looked good== was cheap.

good luck

I like my wild hairs. I can usually make most of them work. I don't think the soup cans would hold much weight. I think the can itself would bend after a while.
