Paint the Hula Hoops

First I started by spray painting my two hula hoops with Rustoleum Oil Brushed Bronze.

Then let it dry.

Cut Wood Shelves

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.

Drill Holes

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!

Add Dowels

Add Dowels

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.

    Did you attached the dowels by also screwing them to the hoops

    I love this idea, I’m just unsure of how those plastic hula hoops sustain the weight of those shelves and then anything put on the shelves, overtime? Is there something I’m missing?

    I'm thinking of big hula hoops I had as a kid, and can't imagine it fitting on a bathroom vanity??

    I love this idea!!...however there's 2 ways I would use this concept...1) I would place this on a wall as a wall shelf unit (with thinner yet medium weight shelves) and 2) I would use 4 hula hoops to make this version taller by staking them together, I also see small low contemporary style feet on the botton unit to keep it from rolling. I plan on making both versions to incorporate in my home. Thanks so much for sharing this awesome idea.
