1. I measured where I wanted the shelf to hang from the ceiling, drilled holes and screwed sturdy hooks into the ceiling from where the chains would hang. 2. I drilled four small holes on the sides of each of the Tryggve shelves. I used three shelves but you could use more than that. I screwed small hooks into each hole, with the hook opening facing down. 3. I hung four chains (in this case 5 feet each) from the ceiling hooks, then hooked the three Tryggve shelves onto the chain. Done!
