DIY Hanging Curio Shelf
This is a fun little project that won't break the bank. It's a 1 board project and works great for displaying lightweight curios and bric-a-brac in your home. We used a pallet board to create this project. But of course it will work well with any wood board - think old barn board or a piece of scrap wood from another project you've completed around the house, like this floating laundry room shelf!
This project is just adorable. While it's not meant to hold heavy items, it will hold small things you wish to display. Think ceramic ornamental items and other cute things you have tucked in boxes around your house.My friend uses hers to for those silly solar powered plastic toy things that move when the sun hits them (you know what I'm talking about!)
- Pallet Board – 10″ long
- Sisal/Twine – one 60″ pieces
- 4 Cup hooks
- Sand paper
- Paint or Stain
- Personal protective equipment (safety glasses, gloves etc..)
Cut your wooden board to about 10 inches long.
Sand the board smooth to get rid of any splintery areas.
Paint the board with your choice of color paint. Use a dry brush technique for a rustic look, or paint the entire board for a more modern look.
Attach the hooks at each corner of the board like in this photo. Alternatively you can use eye hooks. I just happen to have these hooks laying around collecting dust. Use what you have on hand!
Grab your piece of 60″ twine and tie the ends together with a strong knot. Loop the twine through the cup hooks at either end of the board situated so you can hold the string in the middle and hang it on your wall.
Use your choice of wall anchor to attach it to the wall and place your curios on it! See how easy this curio shelf is to build?!
