Moving on to the sunroom

The hallway is finished and I'm tired of the hunt for a kitchen clock so I'm turning to the sunroom. My inspiration is the Flora Grubb nursery here in San Francisco and the challenge is keeping the room clean enough for a laundry room but full of plants and cool reclaimed objects used as planters, shelves and furniture.

The Container Store > Cable Shelf Brackets

Our Cable Shelf Brackets can be used with almost any type of 5/8" to 3/4" shelf. We show them here with our Driftwood Melamine Shelves (sold separately). They accommodate shelves up to 16" deep, and hold up to 100 pounds when in installed on wood studs or cement, and 75 pounds in drywall. Installation is very easy. For mounting on wood studs, we recommend using the screws included in the package and a 1/8" Drill Bit. For drywall, we recommend 3/16" x 3" Toggle Bolts (sold separately, listed below) and a 1/2" Drill Bit. $19.99 per set

It would be cool to hang shelves for plants using these brackets. I know, not recycled materials but cool nonetheless. We have the paint for the room so we could paint wood shelves to match the walls.

Can they hold up to 100 pounds of cat treats?
