Pipe & Pallet Shelf

63K Views
Steph has been looking for some shelves in her office to hold supplies. We haven't used pipe or pallet wood before in a project so we thought shelves would be a great way to try both materials and get some cool shelves!
Check out our website for the video on how this came together!

Materials
- Pallet (they come in different shapes and sizes- we used a pallet that had wood 5.5" wide)
- Sawzall (to cut pallet)
- (2) 3/4" Plumbing Pipe 6" length
- (2) 3/4" Flange
- (2) 3/4" Cap (we priced out each item separately and found it cheaper to buy them in a set on amazon. Same pipes you would buy from the hardware store but it came all together in one package)
- (16) Screws and anchors

We deconstructed a pallet.

We sanded the wood and used a spray finish to seal it.

We made rough marks of where we wanted the shelves.

We attached the flange to the wall and then screwed the pipe into that.
