DIY Essential Oil Shelf

4 Materials
1 Hour

Sometimes when you need something you have to make it yourself.
I was in search of something pretty specific...  a shelf to hold my collection of essential oils.I looked online and they were all quite large and expensive!So I did what I do... I made one myself. 
I had a wire drawer in my workshop that I thought would work nicely! 
I began by cutting 2 pieces of scrap wood to the size I needed for shelves. I am using pressure treated wood only because it was leftover from this project and it was a thinner wood.
I placed the shelves where I wanted them to be in the wire drawer then used large staple nails on the sides of the basket to hold the shelves in place. Now if I had thought ahead I would have stained the wood first but I didn't so I'm using a gel stain that brushes on and wipes off to stain the shelves. 
This little shelf would be great for many things.Hang it on the wall or sit it on a shelf like I did. Next it was time to  fill my shelves with essential oils. 
I saved a ton of money by making a shelf myself using reclaimed wood and a wire drawer I wasn't using. Now I can buy more essential oils!Thanks so much for visiting and before you go please sign up at for the Homeroad emails so I can send my latest DIY tutorial straight to you! Visit the GO Box Below for more information
