Hula Hoop Wood Shelf

8 Materials
2 Hours

Okay, you will not believe what I made using some dollar store 24" hula hoops. Check it out!

First I started by spray painting my two hula hoops with rustoleum oil brushed bronze.

Then let it dry.

I then cut my 2 wood shelves- I came up with 23” that was to the edge of my hula hoops.

Then I sanded them down.

Then I stained the wood on all sides.

I then drilled some pilot holes through the hoop and into the wood.

I used a box to level between shelves and drilled in the second shelf.

Resting it like this made drilling the shelves in easier to do!

After the shelves were in place, I added two wooden dowels to the base to make sure it wouldn't rock.If you have any mistakes, just use some electric tape and spray paint to cover any errors.

And that's it, it's done and ready to be used!

Here it is on my bathroom vanity I think it turned out super cute! What do you think? The whole shelf only cost me $10! See more great items at Gilbert Marketplace

      Thank you so much!! And to be truthful I tried to hang it on the wall it would be a little too wide and it wants to pull away! Best for the Counter!! 😊 or plant shelf

    That looks awesome! You must have a big countertop to fit that on it! My only counter space I have is literally less than4" deep and about maybe 20" tops! But possibly less than that. I'm in an RV. Any ideas on making storage on my counter space for make-up? I'm using a little sorter now but I need more space. I was thinking maybe something like this only with narrow shelves as well as more shelves to put stuff on. What do u think?

    Why wouldn't you leave part of the wheel? Now, it's just basically a circle frame. I would have left the bottom half the wagon wheel, and only one shelf running across the middle.
